PhD Supervision

I'm happy to be approached with proposals from students who would like to start their doctoral studies from October 2022 onwards. For students who would like to begin their doctoral studies earlier than that, please have a look at the PAIS People pages for potential supervisors. Please also note that I am based in a Department of Politics and International Studies. This means I can only supervise projects that fall within this disciplinary remit. All PhD candidates in PAIS have to undergo the same process to upgrade from MPhil to PhD registration and your work will be assessed by a panel comprised of Politics/Political Science/International Relations scholars.
