Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests are in the fields of comparative European and British politics, political parties, elections, territorial politics, and democratic innovations. My main publications relate to party organisation and elections in the UK and in Spain, with a focus on the multilevel dimension of these issues.

I am currently working on a project about devolution on citizen engagement in Spain and the UK. 

I would welcome supervising students interested in doing a dissertation in the field of comparative politics related to democratic innovations, political parties, and elections, especially in multilevel contexts, as well as devolved and regional institutional issues. I can supervise work that uses qualitative or quantitative methods.


I convene: 

PAI 2002 British Politics (with Dr Chris Raymond)

PAI 3067 Challenges to Contempoary Party Politics

PAI 7100 Engaging Citizens in Democratic Institutions

I also teach on PAI 1009 Comparative Politics, PAI 2045 The Politics and Economics of the Devolved UK, and HAPP 7001 Approaches to Research Design.


I also used to convene PAI 7002 The Government and Institutions of Northern Ireland


The MA in Legislative Studies and Practice (with Prof. David Phinnemore) is currently suspended. It is a unique postgraduate taught degree that combines the academic study of how Northern Ireland is governed from Stormont to Brussels and a 3-day-a-week placement with a unit of the Secretariat of the Northern Ireland Assembly, either the Research Office RaISe, the Bill Office, a committee, or the Business Office (see programme here)
