Declan McDowell-Naylor



I am a visiting tutor in the Department for Politics and International Relations, at Royal Holloway, University of London and a doctoral researcher in the New Political Communication Unit, also at Royal Holloway. 

My research interests cover the areas of political communication, science and technology studies, and political theory. My work focuses on digital media and data in politics, public engagement with technological innovation, and the future of democracy. 

My doctoral research, due for completion in September 2018, is an ethnographic study of how public engagement is facilitated by organisations and government bodies that are developing autonomous vehicles in the United Kingdom.
