Politics and International Relations (PIR): People

My interests stand at the interface of international relations, political theory, and intellectual history. 

My PhD is a history of the changing ways in which the idea of civilization has been used to represent the relationship of 'the West' to the world, and to imagine and legitimate various world-ordering projects, over the last century. 

Before starting my PhD at Edinburgh, I took an MPhil in Political Thought & Intellectual History at the University of Cambridge, and a BA in Politics & International Relations at the University of York. I was a Visiting Fellow at the University of Chicago in 2016.
