I am a Fellow in Foreign Policy Analysis and International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I completed my PhD in 2012. Prior to joining the IR Department faculty I spent one year as Executive Officer to LSE Director Professor Craig Calhoun.
My research looks at the domestic sources of democratic foreign policy, particularly the media and public opinion, and also at the foreign policy making process in contemporary Britain. I am presently working on papers looking at parliament's war powers in light of Iraq, Libya, and Syria, and the way media organisations in different states report statements by foreign leaders. I am also revising my PhD thesis, on British public debate prior to the Iraq war, for publication.
