Research Assistant in the Veterans & Families Institute at Anglia Ruskin University. My current role involves working on a number of research projects looking at the impact of service life on military personnel, veterans, and their families.
My wider research interests are in the areas of military culture, strategic and intelligence studies. I have a particular interest in British military operations (post 1990), contemporary challenges in conflict zones, private military security companies, and conflict experiences (soldier’s narratives).
In November 2016 I received my doctorate from the Department of International Politics at Aberystwyth University. My PhD project was funded by the ESRC and examined whether the presence of children in theatres of armed conflict can have implications for British military operations, and the attitudes and practices of British soldiers.
