I mainly do research on the history of the British Empire and the Commonwealth. I am also interested in inter-imperial relations, particularly those between the British Empire and the Japanese Empire in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Since I dealt with the transition of British external policy toward its first application to join the European Economic Community (EEC) from the Anglo-American and Commonwealth perspectives in my doctoral thesis (which was submitted to Kyoto University, Japan, in 2006), I am still interested in European Integration as well as Britain’s relations with its Commonwealth partners.

I study how social identity affects electoral accountability, the functioning of government, and political behaviour. My work lies at the intersection of Political Economy, Political Behaviour, Experimental Methods, and Political Psychology. In my research I build on strategic and behavioural theories of principal-agent relationships and voting. I implement experiments to analyse how individuals evaluate their politicians’ performance, when they discriminate in favour of their social group, how they make redistributive allocation decisions, or how they coordinate their choices with their peers.
