Research interests

‌I am interested in the politics of health and what this reveals about how life is valued, reflecting my wider interest in social justice, human rights, violence and security. My research is concerned with the politics of health, especially in low-income settings, framed by a human rights perspective, driving forward more capacious understandings of violence.

Research Interests

  • Violence and Peace 
  • Embodied Politics of Health 
  • Experiences of Health Care Providers in Low-Income Countries
  • Health System Strengthening 
  • Health Inequalities
  • Health and Human Rights 
  • Valuation of Life
  • Politics and Ethics of Research 
  • Antimicrobial Resistance

Geographies of Development Honours Options - 20 credits

This course seeks to critically explore key issues surrounding International Development.  It will situate contemprory practices within historical context, exploring the work of Walter Rodney and confronting issues of Colonialism and slavery.  Contemprory elements of the the development agenda will also be explored including issues such as the neoliberalisation and securitisation of aid.  Students will aslo be introduced to some of the challenges made towards development from anti-development theory, as well as postcolonial theories and critiques. The course will also critically reflect on students own (potential) roles within the field fo development, as volunteer tourists, consumers of charitable goods and initiatives.  In doing so, the course aims to promote critical engagement with contemporary global issues and who the 'West' operates in relation to the 'Rest'
