I have been doing academic research in politics at Exeter since 2008. Before that I worked as a language teacher in schools and colleges, and later as a local government officer managing various aspects of education and children's services. In 2010 I was awarded a MRes in Politics and I completed my PhD in Autumn 2017. I am now an honorary research fellow with the Politics Department. My work focuses on local government and localism, central government structure in the UK, and constitutionalism and political theory. I recently became an affiliate of Exeter University's Centre for Political Thought.
