About me

I joined the University of Stirling in July 2019 as Senior Lecturer in International Politics. I am a graduate of the University of California, Davis (BA), the University of Cape Town (MA), and the University of Edinburgh (PhD). I am broadly interested in the Global Governance of Security primarily through the workings of regional security institutions. I have been researching the politics of both the African and European Unions in this regard since 2007. A part of my current research agenda uses critical feminist lens to understand the foreign policy practices of both institutions.

I have published on the relationship between the two institutions, including my monograph, Charting Transformation through Security: Contemporary-EU Africa Relations (Palgrave, 2013) and published in several international journals including Journal of European Integration, JCMS: Journal of Common Market Studies, South African Journal of International Affairs among many others.

I have also taught extensively on the politics of European security, contemporary global security challenges and crisis in Europe.

I am currently Editor in Chief of JCMS: Journal of Common Market Studies. Additionally, I am trustee of the British International Studies Association, African Studies Association, UK and co-convene the UACES Research Network, Gendering EU Studies.

I am an occasional media commentator on topics including EU relations with Africa; feminist foreign policy; Brexit, and the women, peace and security agenda.
