I am a researcher based at the University of Manchester, currently investigating peoples' attitudes towards climate change. In particular, I am working on a project that explores the relationships between religious views and support for, and resistance to, climate change policy and action.
I previously worked at The Policy Institute at King's College London, focussing mainly on a project exploring attitudes towards trust in climate scientists, and for over four years I was a Research Fellow in philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire where, in addition to my research, I taught a number of modules in ethics and political philosophy.
My publications are on (1) democracy and government; (2) religious attitudes - especially trust and faith; and the intersection between (1) and (2), namely, (3) the role of religious attitudes in political and public life. I have published numerous academic research articles in internationally leading journals and a book with Routledge, alongside a range of policy and research reports. Some of my recent work has been featured on the BBC and in The Economist.
For more information, see my CV.
In other roles, I have worked in research development at the University of Surrey, and as a youth worker with The Prince's Trust.
Outside of work, I'm most happy when adventuring with my Shetland Sheepdog.
