Qualifications: BScEcon (Aberystwyth), MInt.St, PhD (Otago)
I am Senior Lecturer in the Political Science and Public Policy Programme and the New Zealand Institute for Security and Crime Science. My research focuses on regional responses to transnational security challenges, most notably cyber security, and with a focus on the Euro Atlantic and Asia Pacific regions. My doctoral research analysed NATO’s durability in the post-Cold War era and how the alliance was able to adapt to a changing security environment.
In 2018 I will be teaching the following courses:
300 level - Cyber Security and the Global Politics of the Internet
500 level - Cyber Security and Cyber Warfare
500 level - International Security, Strategy and Technology
I am interested in research collaborations and supervision in the following areas:
Cyber Security; US Foreign Policy; NATO and Transatlantic Security; Information Warfare and Strategic Communications; Science, Technology and International Security (including Artificial Intelligence and Drone Warfare); Asia Pacific Security; Terrorism and Failed States.
