Academic Profile

I am presently a DPhil candidate in International Relations at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford, and a recipient of the DPIR Studentship. My dissertation is at the intersection of the history of international thought, Fascist Studies, and the disciplinary history of International Relations. Specifically, I aim to recover the ruminations of prominent Anglophone fascists on matters of international affairs and as to how such figures were positioned within, impacted by, or indeed upon, the debates occupying interwar commentators on international relations. Aside from such research interests, I am also concerned with the study of international order and the English School of International Relations.

Prior to my DPhil candidacy, I completed a BA (Honours) at the University of Queensland and the MPhil in International Relations at the University of Oxford, the latter as a Governor Phillip Scholar. In addition, I have previously been employed as a research and tutorial assistant by the School of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Queensland, alongside acting as an intern with the Asia-Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect.
