About Me

I am currently Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Politics and International Studies at Loughborough University’s School of Social Sciences and Humanities. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Prior to taking up my current position, I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow at Utrecht University’s School of Governance, where I worked with Barbara Vis. I also held a 3-year Assistant Professorship in the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University in affiliation with the UNIWEL (Universalism and the Welfare State) research project. My PhD (2014) is from McGill University’s Department of Political Science, where I was supervised by Stuart Soroka.
