From September I will be starting a PhD in Politics at Royal Holloway, University of London. This is funded by the SeNSS DTP consortium through the ESRC and I am on a 1+3 full scholarship. My Thesis seeks to understand the impact that voter ID laws have on not only election turnout but perceptions of democratic integrity. This involves building my own dataset of voter ID laws for countries around the world. The main purpose of the PhD is to understand the different ID laws around the world.Also to move the discussion to be more comparative in nature.
More broadly my interests are in quantitative politics, especially voting behaviour, political value formation and value change. However, I also have an interest in individual testimonies of war which typically fall outside of the prevailing narrative of conflict, as they can provide a different view of what war is or can be.
