PhD Candidate, European University Institute, Florence

Author: The Greens in British Politics: Protest, Anti-Austerity and the Divided Left

My main research interests are political participation, elections and European politics. My thesis looks at the causes of individual-level within variance in turnout at national elections. I'm also interested in the new political cleavages and changing party systems of Europe, particularly the growth of UKIP and the Green Party of England and Wales.
