About me

I hold an MA in International Studies and Diplomacy (with distinction) from SOAS, University of London.

My PhD is about the de-politicization of South-South Cooperation in agriculture and health. I use a post-structuralist approach based on Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory in order to understand how de-politicization operates through discourse.
