DPhil in International Relations

I am a DPhil candidate in International Relations, under the supervision of Dr. Robert Johnson and Professor Dominic Johnson. My research is jointly funded by the Grand Union DTP (Economic and Social Research Council) and Nuffield College. It explores the interplay between geopolitical strategic thought, sovereignty, and the development of cybersecurity policy by the European Union. My project expands upon the research I had undertaken while reading for the MPhil in European Politics and Society programme (at Oxford’s DPIR). Prior to graduate studies at Oxford, I obtained a BA (Hons. with Distinction) in Political Studies and World Language Studies at Queen’s University, in Canada. At present, I conduct research as a Desk Officer at Oxford’s Changing Character of War Centre (Statecraft and Strategy), and lead the Cyber Strategy and Information Operations research group for graduate students.
