I am a Cardiff-based Research Officer with the Public Policy Institute for Wales (PPIW), working on a range of assignments in the PPIW’s work programme for Ministers. I am also in the closing stages of a Ph.D. in British politics at Newcastle University. My PhD thesis focuses on the potential for co-operation between political parties, using a case study of the British Labour and Liberal Democrat parties. I am due to submit in the autumn of this year.

B.A. (Hons.) Politics, Newcastle University (First Class).

M.A. Politics, Newcastle University (Distinction).

More broadly, my research focuses on elections, political parties public opinion, and public policy.
