About me

I am a Lecturer in International Politics and Programme Director for the BA (hons) International Politics programme at the University of Stirling . I take a keen interest in all things international politics, from big picture thinking around the nature of world order, great powers and polarity, to the finer details of EU politics and the particulars of global nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament efforts. My research interests specifically center on the power, politics and performance of actors within international organisations, specialising particularly on the EU, and with special attention to the fields of nuclear non-proliferation/disarmament and trade. I have published extensively on EU performance in multilateral negotiations, particularly within the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review negotiations and the WTO's multilateral trade negotiations. I am also an occasional media commentator on topics such as international security, diplomacy, foreign policy, trade negotiations, and the EU.

Prior to joining Stirling I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre for Globalisation and Regionalisation at the University of Warwick where I worked on the FP-7 funded project Global Reordering: Evolution through European Networks (GR:EEN). My PhD is from the University of Glasgow.

My research is closely mirrored in my teaching where I aim to bring the outside international context into the classroom wherever possible through active learning methods like simulations or role-play exercises. I also advocate a strong employability focus in my teaching, with emphasis on the transferable skills helpful to a competitive international politics job market. In 2019 I received a student nominated RATE runner-up award for Innovation in Online Teaching as well as a Teaching Impact Award from the University of Stirling for my work on active learning simulations to mimic real world international negotiations.
