I have arrived at Swansea University from the University of Exeter where I held a position of a Lecturer in Quantitative Social Sciences. I also hold a PhD in Politics from the University of Nottingham.
My research interests include political participation and representation of under-represented groups such as women, ethnic and religious minorities in Western democracies, especially in Britain. I am also interested in how identity-based predictors shape the political attitudes and behaviours of political elites and members of public. I predominantly use quantitative and mixed methods methodologies in my research and apply them to analyse survey and text data.
My teaching and supervision overlap with my research interest and are informed by my previous and current research.
