Postdoctoral Research, Nuffield Politics Research Centre
Research Interests: Social class and inequality; families and intergenerational resource distribution; environmentalism and Green parties; party competition and elections.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Nuffield Politics Research Centre at the University of Oxford.
I research why different people think the way that they do about inequality, the welfare state, immigration, and the environment in Britain and other wealthy democracies. I do this through the analysis of quantitative survey and contextual data.
In addition, I am also interested in explaining why and how party systems change overtime and, in particular, how we can best understand the growth of relatively 'new' political organisations, such as the Greens and modern nationalist parties.
I am currently the recipient of a British Academy-funded Fellowship that aims to understand attitudes to intergenerational inequality and age-related welfare state reforms, working alongside Profs Jane Green and Geoffrey Evans.
My work has been published in the academic journals Comparative Political Studies, Party Politics, and West European Politics.
