Personal profile


My mixed-methods and cross-disciplinary research focuses on religious attitudes within public and political life. At present, I am a Research Associate working on the Religion, Theology and Climate Change project, which explores the relationships between religious views and support for, and resistance to, climate change policy and action. I have recently published work on religious fundamentalism, extremism, echo chambers, the nature of religious attitudes (especially trust and faith), forms of democracy, and the nature of electoral accountability.

I have previously held research and lecturing posts at the University of Hertfordshire and The Policy Institute at King's College London, where I wrote a range of policy reports, including on public views towards climate change scientists and issues around freedom of speech.

I utilise a range of methods in my research, including qualitative interviews, observation, and quantitative analysis; and draw from, and develop concepts within several disciplines, especially theology and analytic philosophy.
