About Me

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science and former Instructor of Record at Texas A&M University. I was recently named one of five university-wide Texas A&M 2023-24 Dissertation Fellows. I hold a BA in Politics and International Relations & Economics from the University of Strathclyde.

My research interests include: legislatures; executives; electoral and policy outcomes; representative institutions; coalition governance; constitutional law; judicial politics. In my doctoral dissertation project, I focus on the use and consequences of government-initiated votes of confidence in parliamentary democracies and related features of parliamentarism.

On the 2023-24 academic job market.
