Welcome to my website. I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London. My interdisciplinary research offers a political sociology angle to the study of political violence, discrimination, and democratic stability. I seek to understand how divisive experiences shape patterns of political attitudes, yielding unequal resource allocation across groups.
