About and Contact

IMG_20190327_192418_208.jpg I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Mortara Center for International Studies at Georgetown University, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. In August I will begin a new job as a lecturer in the School of Sociology, Politics, and International Studies, at the University of Bristol.

I hold a PhD from the University of Toronto, where I have also been a sessional lecturer. My research focuses on institutional change, strategic innovation, and normative evolution in national and international security sectors. My project in DC examines the private intelligence industry and practices of government contracting.

My past work has focused on issues in international relations theory and on US counter-terrorism policies, and may be found in recent publications in International Studies Quarterly, European Journal of International Relations, International Studies Review, and Terrorism and Political Violence. More details on my research.
