After recently defending my PhD at Penn State, I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science at La Salle University, Philadelphia. My main fields are International Relations, Comparative Politics and African Studies. I have previously studied at the University of St Andrews (UK) and Oxford University (UK). I am a UK citizen and hold permanent residency in the US.

My dissertation focuses on the use of violence within African civil wars and draws on theories and methods from both International Relations and Comparative Politics, and uses both quantitative and qualitative methods.
