About me

Anne is a comparative human geographer who currently researches the intersections of geography and non-state conflict, the social legacies of displacement, and host-migrant relations. She is especially interested in human-environment interactions, is drawn to mixed methodologies, and is currently developing expertise in the use of observational data, spatial analysis, and comparative case studies.

She is currently supported by the LSE Studentship Funding Scheme and continues to work as a research consultant for the World Bank on different projects in fragile and conflict-affected states. She has also previously worked as a researcher and analyst on security issues in the Sahel for a small research firm, and as a research assistant for the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace, and Security’s gender and justice projects.

Anne holds a master's degree from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service where she concentrated on human security and post-conflict development. She also holds a BA Honours degree in Geography from Concordia University in Montreal. She has ten years of cumulative experience in the global development sector in roles ranging from fisheries and marine ecology research to public advocacy for economic development policies.
