I am a Lecturer in the Government Department at the University of Essex. I live in London, though. I like it – my colleagues and students are great and I have time for both research and London fun.

Before that, I was at LSE for four years. First, doing a two-year postdoc on a MOBILEX-grant (from the EU). Second, as an LSE Fellow in Political Theory in the Government Department at the London School of Economics.

Before that, I was at Warwick and Aarhus – excellent places.
