Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in Political Science at University College Dublin.

Prior to this, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Political Science at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I was also a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, and a research fellow at the University of Exeter. I received my PhD from Stony Brook University.

In my work, I analyze the rhetoric of politicians. What do these politicians say? How do they say it? And why? I also work on issues related to multilingual text analysis as well as images as a means of political communication.

I am co-founder of the Connected_Politics Lab at UCD. I am also a member of the European research infrastructure project OPTED “Observatory for Political Texts in European Democracies”

I tweet under hjms.
