I grew up in the north of England and am a graduate of the University of Cambridge (BA Social and Political Studies and M.Phil. Historical Studies) as well as a former Joseph Hodges Choate Fellow at Harvard University from 2000-01. My PhD studies took me to Florence, where I completed my dissertation at the European University Institute under the masterful supervision of Friedrich Kratochwil. From 2008-10 I had the great pleasure of being a lecturer in the International Relations Program at the University of Pennsylvania. I returned to Europe in Autumn 2010 to take up a lectureship at the University of Aberdeen, before moving to the University of Stirling in 2013. In January 2017 I began teaching at Aston University.

Research Interests

My research interests include European integration, especially the ongoing Brexit negotiations and issues to do with the Eurozone, as well as international relations theory. Those are subjects I blog on for outlets such as the Conversation or the LSE’s EUROPP. Prospective research students in those areas are welcome to drop me a line to discuss possible projects. 

Professional/editorial offices

I’m a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute in Philadelphia and also an Associate Editor at ECPR Press.

Teaching Activity

At Aston I teach Introduction to Studying and Researching Politics for first-year undergrads and other modules for advanced undegraduates and post-graduates, including one on the politics of Brexit for final-year undergraduates.
