I am a Career Development Fellow in Public Law at Worcester College. I am also a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.
I completed my DPhil at Oxford in 2018. My thesis was entitled ‘The Uses and Abuses of Referendums’ and funded by a Fellowship from the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation. My research is at the intersection of political theory and public law. I am particularly interested in referendums, democratic legitimacy, the concept of representation, and the role of science in democracy. My work has been featured by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Discover Magazine, and the Guardian.
