pic (1)Welcome to my personal web page!

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). My overarching interests lie in studying the everyday politics in the work of public administrators, and understanding the relationship between the politics of policy and space. My work combines public policy and administration with political geography to explore: the policy practices of bureaucrats, social construction of scale, development of ‘best practice’ policies, and production of spatial and political boundaries in policymaking.

I have published my work in a range of outputs including Critical Policy Studies, Environment and Planning A, and Journal of Education Policy.

My current work is funded by The Leverhulme Trust and I have previously been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.

If you’d like to get in touch I’d be really happy to hear from you!
