Teaching Fellow in Politics and International Relations Queen Mary, University of London


 

Welcome to my website.

I am an academic researcher with an interest in the areas of digital politics, political communication, science and technology, British politics, and, most importantly, democracy. My role in society is to understand and explain, through my research and teaching, the nature of political power, its distribution, and its effects.

I earned my PhD in politics at Royal Holloway, University of London. I researched  the role of public engagement with autonomous vehicle development within a jointly government-funded project that took place in London between 2015 and 2018. The research explored the democratic nature of this engagement process, arguing that citizens should be granted more and greater opportunities in these kinds of interaction. 

I have been published in Journalismand the 10th volume of Political Communication in BritainMy writing has also appeared in Political Studies Review, The New Political Communication Unit Blog and Three-D. For details of my publications, click here.
