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 public engagement with technological innovation, the evolving political power of technology companies and developers, and the future of democracy. 

My doctoral research, due for completion in September 2018, is an ethnographic study of public engagement and the development of autonomous vehicles in the United Kingdom.
