Research interests

My current research interests relate to contemporary British political history and the politics of business corporations.

Research group

I am currently first supervisor for two PhD projects – the first on bank reform since the financial crisis (Adam Barber) and the second on the governance and politics of the nuclear renaissance. I have previously supervised eight PhDs to completion.
I would be willing to consider supervising topics on banking and political economy, British politics, governance, public policy and rational choice theory.

Teaching interests

I deliver the lectures on the 1st year Introduction to British Politics module
