I studied Russian and French at the University of Leeds and worked in Russia and the Czech Republic before returning to the UK to complete a Masters in Social Science and a PhD at the University of Birmingham. I joined UCL-SSEES in 2003 having previously worked as Lecturer in Politics at Brunel University, West London.
I am a political scientist specialising in the politics of Central and Eastern Europe. My research focuses primarily on issues relating to political parties and democracy in the region
My research interest include: the formation and disintegration of parties; the comparative politics of the centre-right in Central and Eastern Europe; and the emergence of new anti-establishment parties across Europe. I have also published work on the political representation of older people in Eastern Europe. I have a longstanding in-depth interest in the politics of the Czech Republic.
