CV – About me.
I am an ESRC funded PhD student at the University of Bath who is examining the use of Facebook by political parties in the UK. I have a MRes degree in politics from Bath University, an MA in politics and international studies from Durham University, and an LL.B degree from Exeter University.
As an individual I believe I have well developed interpersonal skills and experience of dealing with people in a range of different circumstances. By my nature I am creative and curious. I have well developed all round abilities, and have a desire for knowledge, in all aspects of life. Quick to learn, and with excellent research skills, I work best under pressure and thrive on deadlines.
