I completed my PhD at Strathclyde University in 2013. My thesis examined the impact of devolution on the Welsh and Scottish Conservative parties. I joined the School of Social and Political Science as a lecturer in September 2013. I previously taught at the universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow.
<br>My research interests are in broadly three areas: conservatism and the UK Conservative Party (especially in Scotland and Wales); territorial politics and public policy; and British, Scottish and Welsh politics.
