I am a senior lecturer in International Relations at the School of Law and Social Sciences. Prior to joining LSBU, I was a teaching fellow at Royal Holloway (UoL) and a teaching assistant at the University of Edinburgh, Stirling University and the University of St Andrews in International Relations/Politics. I have been awarded a PhD by the University of St Andrews on the securitisation of Islam in the United States.

I am the co-lead of the Race, Gender and Sexualities research group at LSS and the co-convenor of the BISA Working Group on Emotions in Politics and IR.

My current research is broadly situated at the intersection of critical security studies, US foreign policy and feminist writing in IR. I am particularly interested in the idea of Feminist Foreign Policy and the uptakes by the "good states" to formally adopt feminist policies domestically and internationally. My upcoming project is an edited volume on feminist policy-making (with co-editor Hannah Partis-Jennings) and seeks collaboration with policy-makers, activists and INGOs.

I am also interested in the emotion and visual Turns in international relations, in particular the affective and visual responses of solidarity to victims of terrorism such as ‘Je suis Charlie’, ‘Peace’ and ‘I heart MCR’. Along with co-convenor Naomi Head (Glasgow) and Amanda Russell Beattie (Aston), I am the convenor of the British International Studies Association Working Group on Emotions in Politics and IR.

I have published a book on the 'securitisation of Islam post-9/11' in which she explores how elite speakers like the President of the United States, the police and the intelligence community in the US construct the threat of terrorism and revert to covert forms of racism to securitise minorities. This book was nominated for the L.H.M. Ling Outstanding First Book Prize.
