DPhil in Politics

Research Interests: Political Economy, Comparative Politics and Government.

I am a DPhil student in Politics and a job market candidate in 2019/20. 

Prior to starting the DPhil, I earned a distinction MPhil Politics (Comparative Government) from Nuffield College and a distinction BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Essex. 

In my DPhil, I study the political economy of risk and insurance in quasi-experimental settings. More broadly, my interests include comparative politics, quantitative methods and causal inference.
