I work as a Lecturer in Politics (with International Relations). I joined LSBU in 2021, having previously lectured at the University of East Anglia and working with the Inter-Parliamentary Union as a research consultant.
I studied at the University of Leicester and the University of York, studying Soviet Russia and the early Abolitionist movement in the UK.
I have published several articles on parliaments and legislatures, and the way in which citizens relate to these institutions. Alongside this, I research narratives and the process of storytelling, and how this can help in understanding (and strengthening) public engagement.
More recently, I have explored the physical and symbolic functions of parliaments and legislatures as built environments (this is the focus of an upcoming book chapter, to be published by UCL press).
I work extensively with international organisations and NGOs, helping to research and produce reports on public perceptions, institutional change, and parliaments worldwide. Most recently, I have worked with the Inter-Parliamentary Union and UN Development Programme, on the third Global Parliamentary Report (focusing on public engagement with the work of parliaments).
