Research interests

My research interests fall into two broad areas stemming from my interests in international security and state violence. First, working with Professor Ruth Blakeley, I'm examining practices of detention, torture and extraordinary rendition associated with the war on terror. Second, I am the exploring the politics and history of the norm of self-determination with a particular focus on how the norm is constituted by states fighting secessionist movements.
