Personal profile

Research Fellow, European Foreign and Security Policy Studies Programme (2006-2007); Teaching Fellow at Loughborough University (2007-2008); Post-doctoral Research Fellow at University of Bath (2007-2009); Lecturer at Bristol from 2009.


My primary research interest lies in European foreign and security policy. My previous research project examined the EU’s intervention in Bosnia since the dissolution of the Yugoslav Federation in 1991. This research looked into the impact of institutions on the coherence and effectiveness of EU foreign policy over time and assessed the EU’s contribution to post-conflict stabilisation and conflict resolution in Bosnia. I am also interested in EU enlargement and the Europeanisation of the Western Balkans, EU security sector reform and the institutionalisation of EU foreign policy, in particular, in relation to the newly created European External Action Service.


My teaching interests are in Europeanisation, European foreign policy and international human rights. My teaching is research-led, but it is also designed to stimulate students' critical abilities and confidence. I am committed to facilitating student participation through the use of a wide range of teaching methods, including seminar discussions, group work, presentations, role-play and simulation exercises. I also rely on new technologies, such as virtual learning environments (Blackboard), powerpoint presentations, films, documentaries and other audiovisual resources. I am currently teaching:

  • SPAI10001: Introduction to International Relations
  • POLI31562: The EU in the World
  • M3030: International Human Rights
  • SPAIM0022: European Foreign Policy
