Academic Profile

I'm a DPhil student in International Relations and have previously been at DPIR for the MPhil in International Relations. I’m interested in the politics of knowledge and the history of political thought, particularly the idea of “expert governance” in contemporary and historical perspectives. In my MPhil I examined the contemporary case of Colombia as a security expert. During the DPhil, turning to history, I will be investigating the role of expert governance in late-nineteenth century liberal internationalism.
