Welcome! I am a lecturer in the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies at the University of Portsmouth. Multidisciplinary by training and experience; I specialise in the increasingly complex world of security and risk. I hold a PhD in Safety and Security Studies from Loughborough University. With a regional focus on Africa, my research interests include a wide range of topics, including terrorism, counterterrorism, asymmetric warfare, security, risk and complexity.
My work is published or forthcoming in various academic journals, including Terrorism and Political Violence, Studies in Conflict & Terrorism, Safety Science, Journal of Eastern African Studies, and Small Wars & Insurgencies.
Beyond academia, I manage Somali Faces, an award-winning storytelling organisation that raises awareness for social justice in Somalia.
