I completed a PhD in political science at the University of Birmingham in 2018. My research is at the intersection between British politics, public policy and political economy. I have held positions at the universities of Manchester, York and Birmingham and have taught across a range of British politics, political economy and public policy modules.
My current role is as Research Officer for a Nuffield Foundation funded project 'Public Expenditure Planning and Control in Complex Times: A Study of Whitehall Departments’ Relationship to the Treasury (1993-Present)' working with Dave Richards (Manchester), Diane Coyle (Cambridge) and Martin Smith (York). The project investigates a tension that has emerged in the British system of government between highly centralised mechanisms of financial control and an increasingly fragmented system of governance, aiming to better understand Treasury adaptability to this new landscape.
