I have been a member of the Politics and International Relations team since completing my PhD in 2007. I am passionate about student learning, and constantly seek new and innovative teaching and learning methods.
My research work is on outer space and the politics and international relations of space and I have published widely on this and on the politics and regulation of genetically modified foods and crops. i Regularly attend conferences and workshops on outer space politics.
I am co-convenor of the BISA working group of Astropolitics (AWG), a steering group member of the ESSCA Space Policy Research group, a member of both the ISA and UACES, and I am on the Editorial Committee of the journal ERIS (European Review of International Studies).
I work closely with the international office to provide international experiences for students, in terms of exchanges, study abroad schemes and field trips. I also provide political commentary for several radio stations, most frequently BBC Radio Kent and Times Radio.
