Current research:

My doctoral research focuses on the notion of political experience in Hannah Arendt's thought, on which I have published several journal articles as well as applied to contemporary political phenomena. In addition, I am interested in the study of world politics/international relations and contentious politics. I have written on the 2011 wave of protests, the Egyptian revolution in particular, and the European union's policy reactions to it. I also have an ongoing research interest in the notion of 'resilience' in security politics.
