I’m especially interested in how governments manage a world of transboundary global risks (see e.g. this for the Brookings Institution) and how to develop new theories of influence for a world in the behaviour and beliefs of millions of ordinary people shape global issues like climate change, infectious disease, or political extremism (see e.g. this for the UK Foreign Office).
I’ve also done various stints as a political adviser, including as special adviser to two UK Secretaries of State (Valerie Amos and Hilary Benn) at the Department for International Development (DFID), and as a policy expert in the UN Secretary-General’s office.
I am married, have two kids, live in North Yorkshire, and enjoy DJing progressive house music, repairing old mechanical watches, meditating, and running. I am currently learning Norwegian and dry stone walling.
