Current Research

As a CASE (collaborative) ESRC-funded full-time PhD candidate, I am working on the project "Public Opinion and Contemporary Communication Strategies in the UK". My research supervisors are Professor Cees van der Eijk and Dr. Anja Neundorf.

I am primarily funded by the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre (in collaboration with the Committee on Standards in Public Life (CPSL)), the School of Politics and International Relations and Dr. Hendrik Muller's Vaderlandsch Fonds, as well as through a UK Data Service Impact Fellowship

I specialise in the study of political communication and political argumentation.

More broadly my substantive research interests include public opinion, election campaigns, (standards of) politician behaviour and populism and my methodological research interests include the application of rhetoric and argumentation (theory) and the interdisciplinary combined use of quantitative, qualitative and automated research methods to datasets of all sizes.
