After a BA in Modern History at Oxford, I spent two years training as an international tax consultant with KPMG in London. I returned to academia at LSE in 2008, undertaking first an MRes in Political Science and then a PhD in International Relations. Between 2012 and 2013 I served as Executive Officer to the Director and President of LSE, Professor Craig Calhoun. In this role I headed up the Directorate support team and served as advisor and secretary to the Director's Management Team. I was appointed as a Fellow in the Department of International Relations in 2013, teaching International Politics and Foreign Policy Analysis on both our BSc and MSc programmes. I have won teaching prizes in each of my three years as a member of the IR Department faculty.
