Research Interests

I am interested in critical approaches to security studies. specifically, in how security and insecurity are experienced in the 'everyday' and how experiences of insecurity are resisted. I carried out research into the experiences of Palestinian women living under occupation in the West Bank. I have also conducted research on the implementation of the UN Women, Peace, and Security resolution in Liberia. My current research investigates how large-scale land deals in West Africa impact rural women's security.

Teaching Interests

I teach several MA seminars, including Development, Peacebuilding, and Conflict, Security, & Development. I also teach PO4107 Nationalism, Ethnicity and Conflict for undergraduates in the Autumn term.
