Background

I completed my PhD in Politics & International Relations at the University of Edinburgh in 2012. My research applied classical realism to the political history of the European Union. I joined the School in 2012, initially as a teaching fellow in Politics & International Relations and moved to the Social Policy subject area in April 2015 as a lecturer. I have served as deputy director of the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (2012-2013), deputy director of the Academy of Government (2013-2015), director of the Master of Public Policy (2013-2015), policy adviser to the senior vice-principal (2016-2017), and quality assurance director for the School of Social & Political Science (2017-2019). In 2019 I was a DAAD Fellow at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. In 2020 I was a visiting researcher at Carleton University.
