Reader in International Security, University of Warwick

I joined Warwick as Associate Professor of International Security in 2012. Previously, I was RCUK fellow at the Centre of Citizenship, Identities and Governance, The Open University. Prior to that, I was ESRC postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Birmingham.

My research cuts across the fields of critical citizenship, migration, border and security studies, and coalesces around my interest in the emergence, development and contestation of various rationalities or techniques of governing mobility. Specifically, I consider the political implications of different practices of governing mobility, as well as the transformative potential of diverse struggles through which such practices are contested, resisted and/or subverted.
