Professor of Politics
My research interests are in the areas of comparative political behaviour, media and political communication in the context of European elections and public opinion. I have just finished work on two projects: the EU funded PIREDEU [ 2009 European Parliamentary Elections (www.piredeu.edu)] and the ESRC funded Perceptions of Power. Publications from these projects can be seen on my publications page. I am also coordinating the Marie Curie ITN in Electoral Democracy ELECDEM and follow on twitter @elecdem) that is nearing completion. I am a member of the Centre for Elections, Media and Parties and along with other members of the centre work on the ESRC funded Comparative Cross-naitonal Electoral Research project.
I am beginning a new ESRC funded project in January 2013:
