Teaching and supervision
Most of my teaching is in the area of British politics and government and British political history since 1900. Current taught modules include Britain since 1945 (level 4), British Politics and Government (level 5) and Contemporary Issues in Historical Perspective (level 6).
Research interests for potential research students
Areas of research interest include elections in Britain (co-author of Politicos Guide to the 2001 and 2005 General Elections and of The Political Map of Britain), Women in Politics (co-author of Women in Politics: Europe since 1945) and local government.
I have supervised postgraduate dissertations on a range of contemporary topics including regional issues, education and housing policy.
