I began my PhD in 2018 with funding from the ESRC, on the 1+3 scheme. I completed an MA in Research Methods in 2019, having previously undertaken an MA in International Security and a BA in Politics and International Studies, all at the University of Warwick. For the 2020/2021 academic year I am also working as the Communications Officer for the British International Studies Association Postgraduate Network.
My research looks at identity constructions and performances, framings of migration and conceptions of the border. I am especially interested in: ontological security, biopolitics, nationalism, borders, resistance and vigilantism. I have also been involved with the Border Narratives project. My supervisors are Nick Vaughan-Williams and Christopher Browning.
During the 2019/2020 academic year I was an associate tutor for PO231: International Security.
During the 2020/2021 academic year I am an associate tutor for PO219: Theories of International Relations.
