Personal profile

Personal profile

I joined the Department of Politics and International Relations in July 2020, after working as a Lecturer in IR at London South Bank University, as a LSE Fellow at the Department of Methodology at the LSE, and briefly at UCL as a Teaching Fellow. I completed my PhD at Royal Holloway in 2017, and hold a MRes (distinction) from the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies, and an MA and BA cum laude from the University of Bologna in Italy.

Research interests

My research focuses on the connection between war and political economy, as well as violence and justice, building especially on critical and feminist traditions in IR and IPE. Over the past years I have worked on transitional justice and peacebuilding, focusing especially on socioeconomic justice, as well as on methodology and methods in IR, research ethics and fieldwork. Much of this work draws on fieldwork carried out in Bosnia and Herzegovina over a number of years. 

I am currently working on a research project on the global politics of steelmaking.

My book Socioeconomic Justice: International Intervention and Transition in Post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina was published by Cambridge University Press in 2020. 


I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. At the moment I teach the following modules:


  • PR3636 - Peace and Justice after Conflict


  • PR5432 - Analysing International Politics
  • PR5600 - Introduction to Research Methods 

I have previously taught on the first-year UG module PR1500 - Introduction to International Relations.
