I am Lecturer in Global Politics and Policy in the Department of Politics and International Relations (PAIR).
My research focuses on the theory and practice of international security governance, including the role of international organisations in international security policy. I am interested in Europe’s role in global security, particularly in the context of International Relations theory.
My recent book has analysed the role of the European Union as a global security actor. Its aim was to adopt a comprehensive approach, by including the activities of the European Commission as well as the Council of Ministers, and by including non-traditional security problems. I have also published widely in academic journals, including JCMS Journal of Common Market Studies; Journal of European Public Policy; Cooperation and Conflict; Perspectives on European Politics and Society; European Foreign Affairs Review; European Security.
