I am a DPhil candidate in International Relations (IR) at St Antony's College, University of Oxford. My research—funded by a DPIR Studentship and previously the Governor Phillip Scholarship—explores the history of Anglo-American fascist international thought during the interwar period through to the mid-twentieth century. I am particularly concerned with ideas of fascist internationalism and recovering intersections between far-right actors and the disciplinary history of IR. Beyond my doctoral dissertation, my research also encompasses contemporary forms of far-right politics and extremism. In addition, I am presently a commissioning editor with the online platform, E-International Relations.
