I am an Associate Professor of Political Theory at the University of Reading, where I've worked since 2015. My research focuses on questions raised by the way that politics is disappointing, because we continue to disagree with, ignore and mistreat each other. One way that has developed is by exploring when different forms of protest and resistance might be appropriate.
I joined the Department in 2015 from the University of Leicester, where I'd been for two years. Before that, I held a variety of teaching and research positions at University College London, and before that, I studied for my doctorate in political theory at the University of Oxford, which I finished in 2009. I'd like to think that despite this long history of academic institutionalisation, I am mostly fairly normal.
