Postdoc

Member of:

    My research interests include political parties, political careers, the comparative politics of climate change, and Irish politics. I was awarded a PhD by the European University Institute for my thesis on Green parties in governing coalitions in March 2014. I am involved in a number of collaborative projects, including the Climate Policy and Political Parties project and the Political Party Database Working Group. In 2009 and 2014, I contributed to Europe-wide Voter Advice Application projects.

    My research project at the University of Copenhagen is funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research | Social Sciences (FSE). It is situated at the intersections of research on governmental stability, party politics, and political careers. It aims to contribute to our understanding of governmental stability at the level of parties and individuals, which in turn is closely related to political stability, accountability, policy, and party system change.

    Within the Department of Political Science, my project is hosted by the Centre for Voting and Parties and I am also a member of the Centre for European Politics

    You can find some notes on topics related to my research at my personal website.
