Teaching and Research Supervision

If you are thinking of applying for a PhD at UCL’s School of Public Policy, I am particularly interested in supervising research projects on civil service management, civil service reform, transparency, ethics and (anti)corruption, with a preference for quantitative or mixed methods dissertations. PhD supervision/examination to-date:

  • Paolo Morini (UCL) (PhD Examiner, 2016)
  • Javier Fuenzalida (Rutgers) (Dissertation Committee Member, 2016-)
  • Cosimo Stahl (UCL) (Co-Supervisor, 2018-)
  • Antonio Reyes (UCL) (Co-Supervisor, 2018-)

My teaching interests span public administration, public management and public policy. At UCL, I teach principally within the MPA in Public Administration and Management. My teaching responsibilities include:

  • ‘Governance and Public Management’ (MPA core course)
  • ‘Policy Advice’ (MPA elective, 2016-2017)
  • ‘Public Management: Theories and Innovations’ (co-taught MSc elective, 2015-2016)

Since September 2017, I have been Head of Teaching at the School of Public Policy at UCL.

For my course teaching and Head of Teaching work, I have won UCL’s Education Award for Outstanding Contributions to Education at UCL. I have also been awarded UCL’s School of Public Policy Departmental Teaching Prize for Outstanding Teaching, and been nominated for a teaching award at the LSE.

Previously, I have taught at the LSE and Sciences Po. In the LSE’s M.Sc. Programme in Public Policy and Administration, I taught ‘The Politics of Policy Advice’ (MSc course) and seminars in Approaches and Issues in Public Policy and Administration (MSc) and Public Policy Analysis‘ (BSc). At Sciences Po, I have taught ‘Public Management: Foundations, Strategy and Performance’ (MPA course).
