Assistant Professor in Quantitative Comparative Politics

School of Government and International Affairs, Durham University

I am an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Comparative Politics at the School of Government and International Affairs, Durham University. I am also currently a research collaborator onsite with Meta’s Statistics and Privacy team.

My research interests surround money in politics, democratic representation and voter behaviour, as well as methodological issues within experimental and computational social science.

I successfully defended my DPhil in Politics at the University of Oxford in July 2020. During my graduate studies I held a joint ESRC-Wadham RCUK studentship. I was a Quantitative Methods scholar at the Department of Politics and International Relations, and was affiliated with the Centre for Experimental Social Science (CESS) at Nuffield College, University of Oxford.
