Key Research Interests and Expertise

I have a strong interest in narrative and interpretivist theories, as well as the process of storytelling. Much of my work has focused on parliaments and other formal political institutions; specifically, the ways in which they are perceived by citizens (and by their own staff). More broadly, I study political engagement, voter behaviour, party alignment, political activism, and myriad other ways in which citizens connect to 'politics'. In addition I'm always keen to discuss 20th century history and ideology (especially in the case of the Soviet Union).
