Assistant Professor of Social Science and International Politics, University of Nottingham

My research interests are international intervention, peacekeeping, peacemaking, and civil/ethnic conflict. My theoretical interests that intersect with these areas include normative theory, just war theory, and cosmopolitanism. I have two primary research projects that will occupy my energies in the upcoming years. These are a book-length cosmopolitan history of the Namibia peace process (1977-90), and peer-reviewed journal articles (possibly forming the basis of another book) on the intervention in Libya’s civil war in 2011. I also have major research and teaching interests in China and the United Nations, and in Africa’s international politics (especially in connection with Chinese and/or Canadian foreign policy).
