Personal profile

Research Focus

I am an ESRC-funded PhD researcher in International Studies. My transdisciplinary research considers how material-affective entanglements with drones reshape our understandings of space, order and more. I am particularly interested in how Chinese drone technologies operate transversally and across borders in global sites. I have related interests in visual IR, the global politics of China and the role of temporalities/rhythms in producing the international.
