I am a postdoctoral fellow with the Gwilym Gibbon Centre at Nuffield College, the University of Oxford and a member of the British Election Study team. I previously held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto and obtained my DPhil at the University of Oxford in July 2017.

I study elections and political behaviour and am particularly interested in voters’ views of female politicians and how attitudes about gender shape political behaviour. In my work I use both observational data and survey experiments. Geographically my work tends to focus on the UK, Western Europe and North America. My work has been published in a variety of journals, including Comparative Political Studies, Political Research Quarterly, West European Politics and the Journal of Women, Politics and Policy.
