My research interests include theories of global order and governance; international institutions and organisations; interpretive and postcolonial approaches; and the Global South in historical international society, especially with reference to the Non-Aligned Movement and the G77 plus China. I am also completing a book, Intervention before Interventionism: Contestation and Decolonization in Global Order, currently under contract with Oxford University Press.


I teach the IR undergraduate core course as well as each of the IR specialist courses (International Relations in the Era of Two World Wars; International Relations in the Cold War). I am also co-teaching the core MPhil course (The Development of the International System and Contemporary Debates in International Relations Theory) and convening the MPhil/DPhil option Historical and Interpretive Methods.

I supervise graduate students in the MPhil in International Relations programme.
