Key Research Interests

Chris' research looks at the politics of non-majoritarian institutions, and how institutions can be made more responsive to, or better insulated from, political pressure. Part of that research looks at independent regulators -- organisations like Ofcom or Ofgem -- and examines their design, functioning and effects. A second part of this research looks at courts and judges, examining not only their independence but also the factors which determine judges' behaviour. His research focuses primarily on developments at the national level in European Union member states.

Teaching Interests

Chris teaches on the second year Comparative Politics and Building Blocks of Political Analysis modules. He also teaches qualitative and quantitative methods at MA level.

Chris would be interested in supervising any research involving comparative European politics, and Italian and Scandinavian politics in particular; and any research involving institutional design or party competition.
