My undergraduate and masters took place at the University of Nottingham, with an year’s exchange studying at the University of Lisbon. I received a first class (M.Sci) in International Relations in 2013.

I began my doctoral studies in 2014 at the University of Essex, and defended my thesis titled Political behaviour in the United Kingdom: An examination of Members of Parliament and voters in 2018.

Research Career

After my Ph.D studies, I moved to Australia and looked to apply my methods training to policy research. Between 2018-2019, I was a researcher at the ANU’s Centre for Gambling Research. While there, I co-authored the Australian Capital Territory’s Gambling Survey, and an evaluation of the Northern Territory’s Code of Practice for Responsible Gambling.

In 2020, I joined the School of Politics and International Relations as a part-time lecturer and Post Doc. As a lecturer, I taught comparative politics and research methodology. In 2021 I became the first Director of the ANU’s Summer and Winter Schools in Political Analysis. I teach an intensive foundational course in Statistics twice a year.

During 2020 and 2021, I worked to build data capacity for the quantitative study of the High Court of Australia and the Australian Parliament, providing empirical basis for two successful ARC Discovery Program bids.

I am currently a research fellow in politics at the School of Politics and International Relations, ANU.
