Addysgu

Masters teaching (PGT)

I convene the Masters programme on Welsh Politics and Government and also convene and teach on the core module titled 'Contemporary Welsh Politics'

Doctoral students (PGR)

I have extensive experience in supervising doctoral students and am very happy to consider further applications.

My principal research interests are currently contemporary Welsh politics, territorial governance in the UK and nationalism. During my career so far I've published 8 books. The latest is a book on the political impact of Englishness (written with Ailsa Henderson). In addition, I've published dozens of peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. I'm currently completing a book on the Welsh criminal justice system (written with Rob Jones).
