Overview

Before joining the HCRI in January 2020 as Professor of Conflict, Peace and Humanitarian Affairs, I was the Director of the Kenyon Institute, the British Academy-funded research centre in East Jerusalem, where I lived and worked for eight years. Prior to this I was a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Conflict Resolution at the Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford, UK. 

My research focuses on the politics of international intervention, the political economy of development in war-torn societies, and the Israel-Palestine conflict. I have conducted research for the UN and several governments on issues related to conflict and development, and post-conflict peacebuilding, and have published widely on these issues. My research has been funded by the British Academy, the Leverhulme Trust, the ESRC, and the Council for British Research in the Levant. 

I am interested in supervising PhDs in the following areas:

The Israel-Palestine conflict

Conflict and development

Post-conflict peacebuilding

The politics of international intervention

Development aid in war-torn societies
