Professor of Politics and Public Policy, Director of Research

I am a political scientist and, specifically, a public policy and administration scholar. My main research interests are the politics of expertise and knowledge utilization; epistemic communities and advisory politics; risk governance; policy learning and analysis; impact assessment; and policy narratives. I explore these conceptual interests at the UK and EU levels principally, and most frequently in relation to agricultural, food and environmental issues. Most recently, I have started to research LGBT legislation in the UK. Between 2010-2016, I was convenor of the UK Political Studies Association’s (PSA) Public Policy and Administration specialist group. I am currently editor of Public Policy and Administration. Please feel to contact me at my work email.
