About me

I am a political communication researcher with a wide range of interests, especially how digital tools are integrated in society, media and culture. I am currently Research Associate at the University of Manchester on a project that examines knowledge gaps and the role of public service broadcasters in the era of misinformation.

I earned my PhD in Politics at Royal Holloway's New Political Communication Unit in 2018, where I investigated contemporary British MP constituency activities. I also produce and edit the department's podcasts, pirwired and npcwired.

I am interested in tackling social inequalities, such as access to information and education, implemented through creative and sustainable solutions. I have previous experience in think tanks, third sector organisations and consultancies in Asia and the UK.

  • Comparing how incumbent MPs and party candidates establish constituency presences with various tools with Sofia Collignon and Jennifer vanHeerde-Hudson. Preliminary results will be presented at ECPR in Hamburg, August 2018.
  • Investigating #metoo as a celebrity driven social movement with Cláudia Ferreria. We will be presenting our initial findings at this year's CMCS in Lisbon.
