Research Focus

My research is at the intersection of gender, security studies and queer theory. I research LGBTQ inclusion in Women, Peace and Security practices as well as queer analysis of security studies more broadly. 

With my research I bridge a feminist security studies approach with queer theory to offer a more complete gender analysis of how the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security resolutions impact lesbian, bisexual and transgender women living in conflict-related environments. The central contribution of my research is a queer security analysis of women’s experiences in conflict-related environments. I am also interested in considering how best to include LGBTQ individuals in peacebuilding initiatives in post-conflict environments.

I am also the Founding Co-Director of the Centre for Gender in Politics.

I am a visiting research with the SPIN - the Secrecy, Power, and Ignorance research Network where I am working on my Queer Peace and Security Secrets project.


 I received my PhD from the University of Massachusetts Boston in the Global Governance and Human Security program. I was the 2018-2019 ISA James N. Rosenau Post-Doctoral Fellow. For Spring 2019 I was also a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School for Economics and Politics.

 I currently serve as the chair for the International Studies Association LGBTQA Caucus. I'm also actively involved in civil society engagement including being part of the Centre for Feminiet Foreign Policy UK Working Group on Feminist Foreign Policy. I am also pleased to be on the editorial board of the Routledge Feminist Peace Research Book Series. I am the former Digital Media Editor for the International Feminist Journal of Politics where I edited the blog (2019-2021).

I am excited about the opportunity to talk about my research as well as global LGBTQ politics and have given numerous guest lectures including at the University of Sussex, the University of Essex, Wellesley, the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, Roger Williams University and Juilliard.
