Professional activities and recognition
I teach a 3rd year course on the policy process with David Blunkett and Kate Dommett. I also deliver the lectures on the 1st year Introduction to British Politics course.
My current research is focussed around:
1. The state of British politics.
I am currently completing a book called 10 Days: A History of Modern Britain which relates a modern history of Britain from the late 1970s to today.
2. Banking and Finance.
Over the last ten years I have worked with Professor Stephen Bell at the University of Queensland to complete a comparative study of the causes of the 2007/8 banking crisis and, more recently, the dynamics of post-crisis regulatory reform.
3. Left Behind?
I have recently started a project with colleagues at the Universities of Southampton and Manchester describing and measuring the growth and decline of towns which are often described as having been ‘left behind’.
