I am interested in interpretive approaches to understanding how politicians and political parties behave - principally the Labour Party. The drivers of political change are many, and complex. My research focuses on the 'ethos' of the Labour Party, and how different interpretations of that ethos help explain the political direction the party has taken.
After graduating I briefly worked for an online newswire before taking a job in Labour politics. I now research and teach at Queen Mary, University of London and live in the East End.
