I joined Aston University’s Sociology and Public Policy group as a Lecturer in Public Policy in September 2010.

Previously I was based at King’s College London, where I was a Lecturer in Public Policy and Acting Director of the King’s NIHR Patient Safety and Service Quality Research Centre. I also directed the Risk Programme within the PSSQ Research Centre.

Before working at King’s, my first academic post was an Economic and Social Research Council postdoctoral fellowship at the London School of Economics.

Research interests

I have previously supervised students working on topics connected with comparative public policy, and risk and regulation. I welcome applications from prospective PhD students interested in working in the fields of comparative public policy, risk and regulation, or economic liberalisation.
