Areas of expertise In 2002 I came to Bristol to study for my PhD in SPS, which I defended in 2006. My thesis entitled 'Critical dialogues: EU Accession and the transformation of post-communist social policy', investigated the impact of EU Accession on Hungarian, Croatian and Slovenian social policy. On the basis of my PhD work, I was awarded an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Currently I am a Lecturer in comparative social policy, working amongst other things, on possible typologies for post-communist welfare regimes in New EU Member States, on the Europeanisation of social inclusion in Central Eastern Europe, and on the transnationalisation of social policy in South East Europe. I have published a number of articles in journals including, Journal of European Social Policy, Social Policy & Administration, and European Societies. Very recently, my first book 'Critical Diagloes: EU Accession and the transformation of post-communist social policy' has been published by VDM Verlag.
