Research Interests

My research covers mass political behaviour and media. Within these areas I have concentrated most on the modern campaign in the United States, in particular how individuals respond to flows of information in campaigns in terms of the effects on their political attitudes, vote choice, and turnout, and the nature and effects of the local news media. More recently I have also started to look at elections in Britain, with a particular focus on perceptions of leaders and how they affect voting behaviour. Beyond issues surrounding American and British mass political behaviour and media I am also interested in areas of political psychology, including the nature and influence of emotions and the structure and impact of authoritarianism.
