My research focusses on the role that the concept of harm has played in international relations, and how this is changed over time. In particular, I focus on how IR has played a role in changing perceptions of harm over time; developing new understandings of harm and adapting old ones to changing patterns of global interconnection. In line with this, my current aim is to provide a defensible account of structure in claims to harm with a view to future empirical work on the structuring of large-scale global challenges.
In addition to my role at Aston, I am currently the Treasurer of the ‘IR as a Social Science’ working group of the British International Studies Association. I also take an active interest in innovative teaching techniques including podcasting and the use of games in education.
