Bio:

My research interest is the comparative politics of the wealthy democracies, especially their electoral competition. My PhD dissertation is focusing on the activities of legislators outside the legislature, taking a mixed-methods approach. Other research projects have included causes of Scotland’s opposition to Brexit and archival work on experiments with proportional representation by American cities.

Before starting at Yale I worked professionally in politics in the United Kingdom, working may way up from intern to Minister of the Scottish Government and then deciding to step down to return to academia. I continue to provide occasional consultancy work in public affairs in Edinburgh.

Fields of Interest 

Comparative Politics, American Politics
