Teaching and PhD Supervision

I welcome expressions of interest from potential PhD students in the areas of civil service management and (anti)corruption in government, with a preference for quantitative dissertations. I am particularly keen to hear from potential PhD students interested in people analytics in government.

PhD supervision/examination to-date:

  • Paolo Morini (UCL) (PhD Examiner, 2016)
  • Annabelle Wittels (UCL) (PhD Examiner, 2019)
  • Javier Fuenzalida (Rutgers) (Dissertation Committee Member, 2016-2019)
  • Cosimo Stahl (UCL) (Co-Supervisor, 2018-)
  • Antonio Reyes (UCL) (Co-Supervisor, 2018-)
  • Alice Moore (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 typically include ‘Governance and Public Management’ (MPA core course) and ‘Policy Advice’ (MPA elective).

For my course teaching and work as the School of Public Policy’s Director of Education (2017-2020), I have won UCL’s Education Award for Outstanding Contributions to Education at UCL as well as the School of Public Policy’s Departmental Teaching Prize for Outstanding Teaching.

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).
