Personal profile

Research overview

I started working at St Andrews in September 2018. I teach and research on issues of security and development in East Asia. In June 2021 I was awarded Senior fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).

I have presented, published and disseminated my research around the world. I have been a visiting researcher at the Weatherhead Institute, University of Columbia (Sept-Dec 2017), at RSIS at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the Balsilie School at the University of Waterloo. I held a Korea Foundation research grant with Sarah Teitt and visited at the APR2P centre at the University of Queensland. From 2012-2018, I was a research fellow in East Asia at the University of Warwick and I completed my PhD at the University of Reading within the Leverhulme Major research Project the Liberal Way of War.

My current research explores three themes:

1) the nexus between security and development in East Asia (with a particular interest in Southeast Asia)

2) The role of East Asian states within international institutions (for example China's actions in the UN)

3) The security challenges presented by North Korea.

In investigating all of these areas I use simulations and wargames as tools for both applying and generating informal and for testing the policy responses derived from ongoing research.

My research has been funded by the Scottish Funding Council/Global Challenges Research, Korea Foundation, the British Academy and the Leverhulme Trust.
