Profile

I am the Director of Research Training for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. I am specialised in naval affairs, seapower, maritime security and ocean governance. I favour multi-disciplinary approaches across social sciences. I am committed to teaching & learning enhancement and academic standards and quality assurance.

Prior to my coming to Lancaster in 2011, I was Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford (CCW programme) and Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews. I got my PhD from the Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva.
