I am the founding co-director of the Centre for Gender in Politics at Queen’s University. My research interests sit at the intersection of feminist international relations, critical peace and conflict studies, and border studies.

I am a cultural and political geographer with particular interest in critical perspectives on security, processes of border making, geographies of embodiment, critical cultural analysis and feminist and queer theory.
