Key Expertise
US foreign policy, foreign policy analysis, coercive diplomacy

About me

I hold degrees from the University of St. Gallen, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and the London School of Economics.

I have research interests in foreign policy decision-making, especially in the US context, as well as coercive diplomacy, military intervention, and security studies more broadly. My research has focused on "hybrid tools", e.g. no-fly zones and buffer zones, in connection with US foreign policy, and on the dynamics of tool choice in executive decision-making. I also work on the theoretical contributions of neoclassical realism to foreign policy analysis and international relations theory.

I contribute to on-going projects on gender & diversity representation in academia and on novel approaches to experiential and active learning.


Not available to supervise MPhil/PhD students.
