Associate Dean, Teaching and Learning, University of Huddersfield

I am a Professor of Governance and Democracy at the University of Huddersfield. I have two main areas of research. One area covers various aspects of Spanish politics including historical memory, citizen participation, social movements and electoral politics. Another area covers governance and citizen participation and draws on case-studies in Spain and the UK. My latest book with co-author Brendan Evans ' Devolution in Greater Manchester and the Liverpool City Region' has just been published by Manchester University Press (May 2023). It compares the metro-mayors and combined authorities of Greater Manchester and the Liverpool City Region.
