Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Studies, University of Westminster

My research focuses on various aspects of feminist international relations and political sociology. I published a book with Pauline Leonard (University of Southhampton) on 'Migration, Space and Transnational Identities: The British in South Africa' (2014, Palgrave). My PhD focused on gender, militarisation and war resistance in apartheid South Africa and I developed the project into a book called 'Masculinities, Militarisation and the End Conscription Campaign: War Resistance in Apartheid South Africa' (2012, Manchester University Press and Wits University Press).

I have BA (Hons) in History and Politics from the University of Exeter and an MSc with Commendation in International Relations from the University of Bristol. I was awarded a PhD in Politics by Rhodes University, South Africa.

I have held Visiting Research Fellowships at Goldsmiths, University of London, University College London, the University of Bristol and the University of Cape Town.
