Personal profile

Biography

My research is located on the interface between Political Theory and British Politics, with a particular focus on rhetoric, ideology and public policy. My current project is supported by a British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grant and explores the rhetorical dynamics of conflict and co-operation within the Conservative-Liberal Democrat government. Before coming to Coventry, I was Research Fellow in British Politics at the University of Leeds (2011-2014) and Research Assistant on the Leverhulme Trust-funded project ‘How the Leader Speaks: British Political Rhetoric and Argumentation’ at Swansea University (2008-2011).
