As a researcher, I am broadly speaking interested in political thought, and organisational politics and leadership theories, with a keen eye directed at party politics. I actually started out as an English major, switched to informatics before finally hitting the bull’s eye at the dept. of political science.

I generally try to take an active part in the public (media) debate where I am happy to opine about party-political matters (usually homing in on the Centre Party); information security; education policy and British Politics. I regularly write a column for a regional newspaper, and there I cast my net a bit wider.
