Personal profile

Research Fellow, European Foreign and Security Policy Studies Programme (2006-2007). Teaching Fellow at Loughborough University (2007-2008). Post-doctoral Research Fellow at University of Bath (2007-2009). Lecturer at Bristol from 2009. Reader from 2016.

Research

My primary research interest lies in European foreign and security policy, with a particular focus on the development on the EU’s conflict prevention and crisis management capabilities and its role in conflict resolution. My previous research project examined the EU’s intervention in the Western Balkans since the dissolution of the Yugoslav Federation in 1991. This study looked into the coherence and effectiveness of EU foreign policy over time and assessed the EU’s contribution to post-conflict stabilisation and peacebuilding in Bosnia. In other work, I have examined EU security sector reform and the institutionalisation of EU foreign policy, in particular, in relation to the newly created European External Action Service. My current research examines EU peacebuilding in the neighbourhood, including the shift towards resilience approaches at the EU level.

Teaching

My teaching interests are in European Foreign and Security Policy, international human rights and International Relations. My teaching is research-led, but it is also designed to stimulate students' critical abilities and confidence. I am committed to facilitating student participation through the use of a wide range of teaching methods, including seminar discussions, group work, presentations, role-play and simulation exercises. I also rely on new technologies, such as virtual learning environments (Blackboard), powerpoint presentations, films, documentaries and other audiovisual resources. I am currently teaching:

  • POLI30014: European Foreign Policy
  • POLIM0019: European Security
  • POLIM3030: International Human Rights
  • SPAI10001: Introduction to International Relations
