Personal profile


I am a 3rd year PhD Researcher in the Department of Politics working on a comparative study of asylum rights groups in Germany and the UK. I use mixed methods to learn more about the influence of organised lobbying on asylum policy and public opinion in both countries. My thesis is supervised by Rob Ford and Nicole Martin. I am a member of the Democracy & Elections Cluster and the Comparative Politics Cluster, and I am also interested in researching migration, social movements, and democratisation.
