College: College of Social Sciences and International Studies

I'm undertaking a PhD in Politics here at the University of Exeter in the department of Social Sciences and International Studies. My project is funded by the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Post-Graduate Research. It focuses on youth participation and political education, in the broader context of the apparent 'decline' of democratic quality in the UK.

I'm a PGCE qualified grade 1 lecturer and worked as an Associate Lecturer in Politics at the University of Plymouth for the past two years, and for 6 years prior, as a College Lecturer and Associate Examiner in English and IR History. Currently, I'm a Post-Graduate Teaching Assistant for the Power and Democracy module at Exeter. Alongside research, teaching is something I love and intend to continue with in the future.
