Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of the Master in American Politics and Foreign Policy
University College Dublin, Ireland
Primary area of research is the foreign policy of the United States of America. My current work focuses on US cyber security policy. I am especially interested in how advancements in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) have affected US national security in the areas of defense, homeland security, and foreign policy. My publications also cover issues of US foreign policy toward the Middle East, democracy promotion, and international terrorism. In 2021, I founded the International Studies and Emerging Technologies working group within the British International Studies Association; the first working group of its kind in Europe. Previously, I lectured at King’s College London (2015-16), at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, part of the UK Defence Academy (2011-13), and at John Cabot University in Rome (2016). I was also Honorary Visiting Research Fellow at City University London (2015-16). Finally, I hold a PhD from King’s College London, War Studies Department.
