Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include policy influence, political participation, advocacy and representation. I am particularly interested in how marginalised groups can influence policy decisions.  

My PhD research focuses on how autistic people can empower themselves to increase their policy influence. I combine existing theories of influence and collective action to produce a hypothesis which is explored through three articles in an article-based thesis. 

My first article on designing policies for empowerment is currently in press with European Policy Analysis journal.

I am fluent in French and Italian and have eight years' experience working in Local Authorities in England to support autistic children.
