Biography

I joined the University of Glasgow in 2005 as a Lecturer in Politics and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2011. 

My research interests focus on the ways in which norms and policy ideas form within international policy communities and have (fail to have) effects in individual countries.  Substantively my research focuses on policy change in western democracies in two distinct areas: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & inter-sex rights and corporate social responsibility.

I have published extensively in both areas in high-profile journals such as World Politics, International Studies Quarterly, International Studies Review, Contemporary Politics and Regulation & Governance as well as a monograph entitled The Same-sex Unions Revolution (Manchester University Press, 2013).  My work has been supported by leading funding bodies including by the Carnegie Trust for Scottish Universities (Same-sex Unions in Western Democracies, 2009), the Economic and Social Research Council (Borderless Politics, 2012-2015) and the Leverhulme Trust (Responsible Lobbyists? 2019-2021). 

In the current Leverhulme project I examine the ways in which large firms’ corporate social responsibility credentials and practices influence their access to policymakers in the UK as well as how these firms engage in the policy process. 

I hold a PhD from the George Washington University in Washington DC (USA).  Before coming to the Glasgow, I was an assistant professor in the Political Science Department at Carleton College in Minnesota, USA.
