Dr. Stuart J. Turnbull-Dugarte is an Associate Professor in Quantitative Political Science. He joiined the Department of Politics & International Relations in 2020 after gaining a PhD in Political Science from King's College London.

Currently, Stuart serves as Director of Postgraduate Research Programmes and he is also an Associate Editor at Public Opinion Quarterly, and the European Journal of Politics and Gender.

His research lies at the intersection of political sociology and comparative politics. Substantively, Stuart is interested in understanding the causes and consequences of far-right party success; how political identities shape electoral action; and the political behaviour of LGBT+ individuals and how the political preferences of this social strata diverge from those of cis-gender heterosexual peers.

Dr. Turnbull-Dugarte's research has been published in leading journals including, amongst others, the American Political Science Review, the European Journal of Political Research,  the Journal of European Public Policy, Journal of Politics, and Political Psychology.

In 2020, he published his first book, “VOX: The Rise of the Spanish Radical Right”, and he is currently working on his second book project “Lavender Ballots: How queers vote and how to win them over”.

Methodologically, Dr. Turnbull-Dugarte tends to apply experimental and quasi-experimental designs in his research. He leads instruction in quantitative research methods, including causal inference, at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is on the steering group of the Centre for Behavioural Experimental Action and Research (C-BEAR).

In addition to engaging in research and teaching, Dr. Turnbull-Dugarte also provides consultancy in data science and research for actors in both the public and private sector. He recently co-authored recommendations for the Welsh Government on the introduction of the single transferable vote (STV) in local elections and has also led the design and delivery of randomised control trials in electoral campaigns for political party and non-partisan organisations.
