About Me

I am Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at Canterbury Christ Church University, in Canterbury – England, where I have worked since 2007. Before taking this faculty position I studied at Newcastle University where I achieved my PhD on the EU’s moratorium on the authorisation of genetically modified foods and crops.

I have continued to research the regulation of biotechnology, as well as European policy making, however in the last two years my research interests have expanded to include space policy, and the politics and international relations of space activity.
