I began teaching on the War Studies Online MA progarmme: War in the Mdern World September 2009 having previously taught at the UK Joint Services Command and Staff College. My PhD looked at the role of outreach at the war crimes trial in Sierra Leone. I have conducted fieldwork in Sierra Leone for my doctoral thesis as well as a project funded by the United States Institute of Peace led by Dr Rachel Kerr. I currently teach part-time on the African Security module for the online Masters programme. My research looks at West and East Africa - resource security, piracy and general security threats to the region. I have specifically focused on Somali piracy (research and private capacity) for the past few years.
