    Biography

    I joined the Department as Lecturer in Politics in 1996 and am now a Reader in Politics. I was previously a Politics Lecturer at the University of Paisley, I have a BA and PhD in Politics from the University of Strathclyde.

    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).

    Teaching Responsibilities:

    I am convenor of our first year course PI1018 Introduction to Politics and International Relations: Democracy and Governance.  I contribute to PI2009, Ideas and Ideologies in Politics and International Relations and the inter-disciplinary Sixth Centrury course SX1011 Sustainability: Challenges and Opportunity.  I am convenor of the honours course PI3562 Political Parties in Britain.  At postgraduate level, I coordinate the MRes in Political Research programme and convene the course on Research Design.    

    I supervise dissertations on elections, political behaviour, political parties, green politics and movement politics.
