After the PhD

Since the completion of my PhD, I have focused on designing my next research project (the digital performativity of populism) which draws and expands on some of the key areas covered in my doctoral thesis. I have also continued (for a second year) in my role as a teaching assistant in the LSE Department of Sociology while working on several publications and preparing my next steps as an early career academic.
