Alex is an LSE Fellow in Qualitative Methodology in the Department of Methodology. He submitted his PhD in Political Science at Queen Mary University of London, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and under the supervision of Kimberly Hutchings and Nivi Manchanda. The title of his dissertation was 'Queer Worldmaking: Radical Sexual Politics in the Age of United States Hegemony.' He has taught at LSE, Sciences Po Paris, and QMUL, and holds an MSc in International Relations Theory from LSE and a BA in History and Politics from the University of Oxford.
Alex previously worked as Platform Research Manager at Apolitical, a peer-to-peer learning platform for government. He also has experience in research roles at the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law in Heidelberg, and Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights in Florence.
Alex's research explores what transnational social movements teach us about the relationship between sexuality, political struggle, and the capitalist state. His work aims to recenter history in international theory, to ground theories of gender and sexuality within their social and historical contexts, and to introduce world systems analysis to queer studies.
