Biography

I completed my Bachelor of Arts at Princeton University majoring in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and then went on to do an MA degree at York University (Toronto) in Political Science. I completed my PhD entitled 'Social Movements and the Making of World Politics' at the London School of Economics in 2001.

Most of my academic research, at the present time, revolves around the comparative study of social movements including the indigenous peoples movements, green movements and women movements. Given the dearth of theoretical work on this topic within mainstream IR approaches, I have been drawn to the margins of the discipline in order to explore the insights of critical theory, feminist theory and so called postmodernist approaches. It is the debates within this theoretical terrain that I am most interested in.
