Research Student

School of Law and Politics


I am an ESRC-funded PhD researcher in the Department of Politics and International Relations. My doctoral research looks at the British military court centre and asks what this space can tell us about the military's relationship with human rights.

I first joined Cardiff in 2019 to complete an MSc in Social Science Research Methods. My dissertation examined the political activism of British military veterans in response to the Northern Ireland legacy investigations. Using a visual methodology, I explored how veteran activists are presented in the media and how these images interact with dominant discourses of British militarism.

I also hold an MA in Conflict, Security and Development (2017-2018) and a BA in Modern Languages (2011-2015) from the University of Exeter.

PL9197 – Introduction to Globalisation (Year One)

PL9199 – Introduciton to Government (Year One)

PL9231 – Critical War and Military Studies: An Introduction (Year Two)

In 2022 I became an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA)
