Alex is officially French and Greek, grew up in Brussels and has lived in England almost continuously since 1997, so he feels like a foreigner everywhere.
Between 1997 and 2008, he completed his academic studies at the University of Kent, covering disciplines such as Economics (BA), International Relations and European Studies (MA), and Politics and Government with some Theology and Religious Studies (PhD).
Before joining Loughborough University in 2010, he worked for the University of Kent and for Canterbury Christ Church University. He has a keen interest in pedagogical innovations, and publishes top essays from his students on Socratic Hive: https://socratichive.wordpress.com/.
His research interests include: Christian/religious anarchism; Leo Tolstoy's political thought; politics and religion; critical terrorism/security studies; pacifism and nonviolence.
