Having previously received a B.A. in History and Politics and two M.A.s - in United States Foreign Policy and Social Science Research - I returned to PAIS in 2020 after a period of work.

Funded via the Economic and Social Research Council, my PhD focuses on how strategic narratives on the economy-security nexus have influenced contemporary American foreign policy.

Research Interests:

  • Strategic Studies (with particular emphasis on U.S. foreign policy)
  • Security Studies
  • The role of the economy within national security discourse
  • Political Communication
  • The influence of popular culture (i.e. film/television) upon politics


In academic year 2020/2021, I will be teaching on:

  • PO107: Introduction to Politics
