Lecturer in International Relations, University of Leicester

Before joining HyPIR at Leicester in January 2018, I was a Lecturer in Defence Studies at the Defence Studies Department, King’s College London, which is embedded at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, Shrivenham. Prior to that, I was a Teaching Fellow at the Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth University, where I also worked for my various degrees. During my PhD at Aberystwyth University I was also a Visiting Scholar at the Space Policy Institute in Washington, D.C. in Spring 2014. My primary research interests concern the politics and security in outer space.

I am currently working on turning my doctoral dissertation on spacepower theory into a monograph, and organising a journal special issue on various approaches to astropolitics.

I am an occasional guest on BBC radio and TV news and current affairs programming, such as Radio Cymru, Radio Wales, and S4C to provide expert analysis on modern warfare and security issues in both Welsh and English languages. I have also featured on the podcasts The Dead Prussian and The Space Show.
