I am a Career Development Fellow in Public Law at Worcester College. I am also a Postdoctoral Fellow of the British Academy at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.
I completed my DPhil at University College, 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 principally concerns the role of referendums in processes of constitutional change. I am also interested in how constitutional referendums intersect with other topics such as voting, representation, and political parties. My research was cited in support of the findings of the Independent Commission on Referendums in July 2018.
