My Research:

I specialise in the ways in which politicians communicate with voters. I am particularly interested in political women and the barriers that they encounter as political representatives. In my current research I investigate the communication barriers that mainstream media create. I focus on the ways in which women politicians in the UK, USA and NZ use digital media platforms to overcome these barriers.
