Sam is currently studying an interdisciplinary PhD in Sociology with Philosophy. His research uses the scientific response to COVID-19 in the UK as a site for understanding how the production of scientific knowledge is politically mediated, with a particular focus on the ways and extent to which politics became embedded in the knowledge claims made by the UK scientific advisory community during the pandemic. Prior to studying for a PhD, Sam worked as a parliamentary assistant to a Labour MP and spent three years at the University of Liverpool in an impact role.
