Lecturer in Sociology, University of Bath

I am a Lecturer in Sociology in the Department of Social and Policy Sciences at University of Bath. I was previously at at Liverpool Hope University and the Centre for the Study of Human Rights at the London School of Economics.

My main research interests are in the sociology of human rights, transitional justice and memory studies. I have published my work in leading journals including the International Journal of Human Rights, International Journal of Transitional Justice, and Memory Studies. My book, Transitional Justice and Memory in Cambodia (2017), explores the different ways that memory is implicated in the ongoing prosecutions at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal (Routlege, Memory Studies: Global Constellations series).

I offer undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in at University of Bath in Race and Racism, Researching Social Change and the Sociology of Human Rights.
