About me

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles.

I write and teach in the areas of international law and political theory, with particular interests in international criminal law and critical/postcolonial approaches to international legal history.

My current work reconsiders the historical development of international criminal law from a postcolonial perspective. My dissertation project – Assessing the Legacies of Empire in International Criminal Law – traces the intertwined histories of international criminal justice and European colonial domination from the 19th century to the present.
