BIO

I am a Professor of Practice in Political Science and International Development at Tulane University. I hold a DPhil in Political Science from University of Toronto, and an MA in Political Science from McGill University. Previously, I was the Simons Post-doctoral Fellow in Dialogue on International Law and Human Security at Simon Fraser University (2014-2015), and a Pre-doctoral Fellow in International Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science (2013).

I study transitional justice, critical human rights, and identity in conflict and post-conflict settings. I have conducted extensive fieldwork in the African Great Lakes region and the Balkans. My current book manuscript examines local perceptions of international criminal tribunals. In addition, I am working on a project that examines female perpetrators of crimes against humanity. 

Upcoming conferences where I will be presenting my current research: International Studies Association annual convention in Toronto (March 2019), Law and Society Association annual convention in Washington, D.C. (May 2019), and Canadian Political Science Association annual convention in Vancouver (June 2019).
