College: College of Social Sciences and International Studies

I'm currently 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 qualified grade 1 College and University lecturer, and have taught English, History and Politics in various institutions for the past 6 years, as well as working as an Assistant Examiner for AQA. Currently, I'm an Associate Lecturer in Politics at the University of Plymouth. Alongside research, teaching is something I love and intend to continue with in the future.
