About Me

I am a Fellow in Quantitative Methodology at the London School of Economics (LSE). Formerly, I was Deputy Head of Insight and Data at the UK Liberal Democrats, where I designed research projects to inform strategic decision-making.

My academic research on political behaviour and attitudes has been published in a number of international peer-reviewed journals. I have also delivered various university courses on quantitative research methods. I have helped develop major online projects designed to improve political information and transparency.

I received my PhD in political science from the University of Kent in 2019. Before that, I received a Research Masters (MRes) from the University of Nottingham and a BSc in Politics and Economics from the University of Bath.
