    Research Statement

    My research interests centre responses to international crimes and mass human rights violations.

    I am currently an investigator on two projects researching transitional justice issues within Cambodia. The first: ‘Restoring Cultural Property and Communities after Conflict (, examines the destruction of the Cham group’s cultural heritage during the Khmer Rouge regime. 

    The second: ‘Whose Voices are Heard?’ (   examines representations of victimhood within sites of dark tourism in Cambodia.

    I am also interested in responses to sexualised and gender based violence, and in particular in the ways in which international criminal law has addressed these specific forms of violence.

    My book, ‘Victims, Atrocity and Justice: Lessons from Cambodia’ will be published by Routledge in September 2018.
