Welcome to my webpage! I am an Assistant Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science and a Faculty Associate with the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at Northern Illinois University. There, I am also an active member of the Qualitative Inquiry Collaborative and I recently joined the Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies.

I hold a PhD in Political Science (International Relations & Comparative Politics) from the University of Toronto. I have also studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science and McMaster University.

You can find a copy of my C.V. here.


My research examines regional security governance norms and practice in ASEAN and elsewhere, as well as interpretive research methodologies and methods.

My work has been published in the European Journal of International Relations, International Affairs (2018 & 2020), Journal of Global Security Studies, PS: Political Science and Politics, and Qualitative & Multi-Method Research, among other outlets. My publications and research agenda are detailed on my research page.

This site also hosts information regarding my current course offerings and my teaching and supervision interests and a number of links and resources for students. The photos displayed on the site are my own, taken during fieldwork.

When not researching, writing, teaching, or attempting to secure funding to make possible the first two, I enjoy drinking too much coffee, cycling, and hiking with my Saint Bernard, Mae.

You can also find me on Twitter and Google Scholar, and visit my profile at NIU’s Department of Political Science.
