My research interests cut across sociology, victimology, social psychology and peace studies, though coalesce around critical, feminist approaches to how societies respond to and recover from violent conflict. I focus in particular on complex, intractable social processes which impact the practice of building peace including the construction and representation of victimhood, identity and intergroup relations. I am keen to develop qualitative, participatory research on local civil society contributions to peacebuilding and transitional justice, and gendered experiences of conflict and peace.
