Teaching

At the undergraduate level, I have previously taught political economy, qualitative comparative research methods, and survey experiments. At Bristol I also used to take 2nd-year students on field trips to the Mediterranean (first Mallorca, later Barcelona). My teaching philosophy is largely to structure courses around assignments that I make as engaging as possible: everything else I do aims at helping students to produce the best possible work on a topic of interest to them.

I developed a Masters course in environmental policy and politics, and for a time I directed Bristol's MSc program in Environmental Policy and Management. That program was originally the brain child of my good friend and former colleague Adam Dixon (now at Maastricht); over time my good friend and former colleague Sean Fox then made it better.

At the Barcelona Summer School in Survey Methodology, I give an annual short course on Analysing comparative longitudinal survey data using multilevel models.
