Pedagogy and research supervision


I am committed to practices of active learning and bring a feminist understanding to all of my teaching on gender, conflict and security.

I am currently supervising several Undergraduate as well as post-graduate dissertations. I am open to PhD applications in the fields of International Relations, Critical Security Studies, Transnational LGBTQ Politics, Critical Peace Studies, Decoloniality, Feminist Security Studies, and Gender Studies.

I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in November 2021.

​I am currently focusing on a British Academy Fellowship and unable to supervise additional students. Beginning in Fall 2023 I will once again be able to supervise projects exploring questions of Gender, Peace and/or Security as well as those with a focus on a Queer analysis of International Relations. 

Here I include information about the modules I teach and convene as part of the team-taught modules at Queen’s University Belfast from Fall 2019 – present.

I was the 2021/2022 MA program convenor of the MA in International Relations.
