About me

I am a PhD student at the London School of Economics. I expect to submit my thesis in early 2022. My PhD research focuses on the political outcomes of social mobility, effects of place-based political socialisation and the political effects of attending university.

More generally, I have a range of interests across comparative politics and public policy. I am working on projects regarding anti-system voting, the implications of unfulfilled implicit social contracts, and financial markets.


Before starting my PhD, I worked for 10 years at Deutsche Bank where I was a Director in Global Markets. I worked across both the trading and sales teams. Latterly, I ran the financials investment grade trading desk in Europe. My CV and papers are available on this site. Please feel free to contact me.
