I am a teaching fellow and research assistant on the project ‘SNT Really Makes Reality: Technological Innovation, Non-Obvious Warfare and the Challenges to International Law’, funded by ESRC and DSTL. I currently teach Transitional Justice & International Criminal Law to MA students and the ‘Art of War Studies’, part of the War Studies BA core course. I am also a member of the War Crimes Research Group (WCRG).
Before joining King’s, I did my LLB and LLM in International Public Law at the University of Amsterdam and the Amsterdam Center for International Law. I hold an MA in International Peace and Security, and a PhD in War Studies from King’s College London. My current research interests include War Crimes, International Criminal Justice, and the legitimacy of Quasi-State Entities.
