Academic Background

My main research interests are in transitional justice and memory. 

I am interested in exploring the role that memory and memorials play in shaping the politics of post-conflict transitions to democracy.  

Most of my work to date has focused on Latin America. My PhD, undertaken at the LSE and with funding from the ESRC, looked at the different ways that the memory of the “disappeared” has been constructed over time through an analysis of a site of memory in Buenos Aires. In earlier work I have explored the memory of the Nazi book burnings and the dispute over whether Britain should apologise to Kenya for the ‘Kenyan Emergency.’  

I have lived and worked in Peru, Chile, Argentina and Spain.  

At the UEA I contribute towards the teaching of several modules including Latin American Development, Research Methods in Human Geography, and a Social Analysis for International Development.  

I hold three teaching awards from my time at the LSE.  

I would be very delighted to supervise students with similar interests in: 

  • Memory & memorials 
  • Transitional justice 
  • Latin American politics
