I am a doctoral candidate in Politics at St John's College, University of Oxford. I research the determination of political preferences in advanced democracies, and the impacts of those preferences on partisanship and voting behaviour. I have conducted research on the causes of support for anti-system, populist, and Green parties. I am also interested what motivates support (or lack thereof) for environmental legislation and climate change alleviation. I conduct research from a quantitative perspective.
I commenced my DPhil in October 2016. Prior to this I completed an MSc in Politics Research (2016) at Oxford, and a BA in Politics at the University of Durham (2015). My doctoral research is supported by an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded studentship, with the additional Advanced Quantitative Methods (AQM) stipend. I expect to submit my dissertation in the first quarter of 2020.
