Hi! I’m an assistant professor in international relations at Durham University. I previously worked at Queen’s University Belfast, the Université libre de Bruxelles, and the University of Copenhagen.
My research interests lie broadly within social and political theory, political geography, and international relations. My published work has been focused on citizenship theory, migration and border politics, human rights, and more recently on popular geopolitical narratives on social media and the global alt-right discourse. I am a co-editor of Geopolitics.
Beyond my academic work, I am producer and co-host of 时差 In-betweenness, a mandarin Chinese podcast that amplifies the voice of early(ish) career scholars from the Chinese speaking world. I am also translator of Rebecca Solnit’s Men Explain Things to Me (English to simplified Chinese, People’s Literature Press 2020).
