About Me:

I am a Leverhulme Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Politics at the University of Sheffield. My research broadly centres on the politics and ethics of security, with particular interests in energy security, climate politics, and China. I completed my PhD in International Relations at the University of Birmingham in 2014, which focused on the politics of energy security in the United States and China. At Sheffield, I am undertaking a three-year research project funded by a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship, titled ‘Securing China: Understanding security politics beyond the West’. I have recently published a monograph with Oxford University Press, based on my ongoing work on energy security. This is titled The Energy Security Paradox: Rethinking Energy (In)security in the United States and China.I also have co-edited a book on Ethical Security Studies: A New Research Agenda, with Anthony Burke, and have published research articles in Review of International Studies, the Journal of International Relations and Development, Millennium: Journal of International Studies, and WIREs Climate Change.
