Areas of interest
I am an interdisciplinary researcher interested in the relationship between theory and history.
My current project examines the historical origins of modern territoriality. In particular, I trace the emergence of systematic border surveying and demarcation, as they emerged within the agrarian capitalism of seventeenth-century colonial North America and were globalised by late nineteenth-century empires.
Postgraduate supervisionI am interested in supervising a broad range of topics in international relations theory, international history, and historical sociology, as well as interdisciplinary topics.
I hold a PhD in International Relations from the London School of Economics, as well as an MSc in International Relations (Research). I obtained my BA from Williams College, majoring in Political Science and Classics.
