Welcome to my website!

I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Political Economy in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London. I am also a research associate at the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation.

My research addresses questions related to the insulation of policy-making from politics and the electoral process, both at the national and European level. My work so far has focused on the democratic legitimacy and accountability of independent agencies, the performance of these bodies, and their relationship to political and societal actors.

My research interests include delegation theory, economic policy-making, arm's length governance, policy performance, and democratic accountability and legitimacy.
