With a PhD on British Politics and Policy, an MA in International Studies (Citizenship & Global Justice), and a BA in Politics with Sociology, I straddle the fields of Political Sociology and Political Economy, mainly focused on the UK and Europe.
I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Hertfordshire, working on the RESCuE FP7 project. My research interests lie broadly in Citizenship and Welfare (particularly regarding social and economic participation and integration, with a specific focus on social/community cohesion), inequality and poverty, the influence of political discourse on the public, and the thought of Anonio Gramsci.
I have published (solo and co-authored) in British Politics, the Journal of Social Policy and in Politics. I have some more papers under review, yet more being written. I’m also in the process of putting together a book proposal to convert my PhD thesis in to a timely book relevant to UK politics and policy audiences.
