My research can be divided into two general areas. The first is on the institutional practices and processes of counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency. The second is on pragmatist social theory and philosophy of social science. These interests come together in my dissertation, on ‘norm transformation’ and the US War on Terror, but I have also explored them individually in a number of publications and conference papers. A plain-language abstract of my dissertation project may be found here: diss abstract concise.
I look forward to further exploring the potential of pragmatist philosophy and sociology as an approach to studying international relations.
