Sheri is a Research Officer in the Centre for Women, Peace, and Security, where she works on an ERC funded project Gendered Peace.
Sheri's other research focuses on female perpetrators in international criminal law, which examines the way understandings of gender, law and violence shift when female perpetrators are centred within analysis.
Before joining the Centre, Sheri taught in the areas of law and gender in the School of Law at the University of Warwick as well as in the School of Law and Centre for Gender Studies at SOAS, University of London.
Sheri is a graduate of Canisius College (BA), The American University in Cairo (MA), and SOAS, University of London (PhD).
