Personal profile


I am a political scientist who researches the politics of ethnic minority and immigrant voters in Europe, and the topic of ethnicity and immigration in politics more broadly. I welcome enquiries about collaboration and PhD supervision in these areas, especially those interested in using quantitative methods (e.g. surveys, experiments). I work frequently with Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study, which has large ethnic minority and immigrant boost samples. 

I co-convene the first year undergraduate course Introduction to Comparative Politics, and run a third year undergraduate module in The Politics of Ethnicity and Immigration in Europe and North America. Office hour appointments can be booked through SOHOL. You can follow me on twitter too - @nspmartin

With Neema Begum and Aurelien Mondon I am a co-convenor of the UK Political Studies Association's specialist group on Race, Migration and Intersectionality. Our website is here.
