I am interested in issues relating to international conflict and public opinion. I joined Leeds in 2009 having taught at Aberystwyth University. I hold an MA and PhD in International Relations from the University of Essex.
Before coming to Leeds, I was a lecturer in International Politics at Aberystwyth University.
Recent research has examined British, American, Japanese and Chinese public attitudes about international relations and the use of force. I have also published research on US coercive diplomacy, North Korean and Iranian foreign policy and the interrelationship between domestic politics and state behaviour in the international system.
I primarily use quantitative approaches for my research although I have done qualitative case study work as well. I'm currently using experimental methods to investigate public support for military action.
I am part of the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (ECR2P) which is dedicated to advancing the responsibility to protect principle through research, education, and policy dialogue.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
