Research Interests:

My research interests span the areas of elections and political parties, political participation, and movement politics. With ESRC funding, and as Principal Investigator, I am currently researching the surge in party membership amongst pro-independence parties following the 2014 referendum on Scottish independence.  Co-investigators are Professor James Mitchell (Edinburgh) and Dr Rob Johns (Essex).
