I was born and raised in Leeds, United Kingdom, completed my undergraduate studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a Master’s of Public Policy and Ph.D. in Policy, Planning, and Development at the University of Southern California. After graduating, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the USC CREATE Homeland Security Center. I am currently Assistant Professor of Public Administration at California State University, Dominguez Hills.
Outside of work I love spending time with my wonderful wife Lauren and exhausting (and lovely!) 5 year-old daughter Delilah. I also enjoy playing guitar, swimming, playing and watching association football, and cooking.
