Biography

I am a political theorist interested in questions of democracy (deliberative and participatory approaches), (in)equality, and urban governance. My work combines normative political theory with qualitative methods and a public policy focus.

Before joining as a lecturer in politics, I worked as a postdoctoral research associate at King’s and an LSE Fellow at the London School of Economics. My postdoctoral project ‘Coping with Complexity and Urban Inequality: Dilemmas of Democratic Mega-city Governance’ was fully funded by the Economic and Social Research Council UK. My PhD is from the London School of Economics, Government Department (2020). I am also a co-chair of the Critical Policy Studies Related Group, American Political Science Association.
