About Me

I’m a political scientist, specialising in:

      • democratic innovations (especially referendums and deliberative democracy);
      • elections and voting;
      • public opinion; and
      • the political psychology of emotions.

I currently work at the Social Science Research Institute of the University of Iceland. For details of the project I’m currently working on, see here.

I have taught both undergraduate and postgraduate courses on parties and party systems, referendums, and political participation.

My work has appeared in publications such as Irish Political Studies, the Irish Politics Forum, and the RTÉ Brainstorm website.

I am always interested in discussing research, especially with a view to collaboration. Please visit the Contact page of this site if you’d like to get in touch.
