Academic Profile:

I am currently a first year PhD student in politics. My research interests include political thought, populism, democratic theory, deliberative democracy and radical democracy.

My current research will examine the role of populist action in different models of democracy. This thesis will question if populism is a central component of democracy and what a ‘true democrat’ is.
