I am interested in post-conflict Northern Ireland, and the emotional weight of living with memories of the Troubles for the ceasefire generation. Broadly, I am interested in how intergenerational trauma, physical sectarian divisions (by way of Belfast’s peace walls) and navigating the tumultuous post-Brexit political landscape affect and alter teenage life in a West Belfast neighbourhood.
Prior to joining Stanford, I received a First Class Honours degree in Global Health and Social Medicine from King’s College London. I also received a Master of Arts in Anthropology and Sociology from the Graduate Institute Geneva. Prior to attending university, I worked for five years in non-profit human rights and health advocacy roles in Scotland, South Africa and Palestine.
