I am currently teaching at the University of Cambridge and the University of Buckingham. Previously, I have taught at the University of Leicester and the University of Warwick.

I completed my PhD in Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick in 2016, in which I analysed the turnaround in US nuclear foreign policy towards India.

My research interests are in critical international relations and critical geopolitics in the context of great power-rising power encounters.
