Lecturer

One of the University's growing number of Sustainability Enthusiasts. Find out more about the initiativeĀ here.

My work is in three interrelated areas, governance studies, political rhetoric and the contribution of constructivist philosophy to these areas. My research on governance centres on the politics of policy making. I research and teach about political conflict around public policy issues, including welfare state politics, and am interested in what these political dynamics say about power in contemporary society. My work on political rhetoric primarily concerns the philosophy of rhetoric, investigating how rhetorical concepts can be integrated into political studies.
