I have served in the British Army for 25 years, moving from regular to reserve service in 2018. A career specialist in military intelligence, I am lucky to have served in many operational campaigns around the globe. I was delighted to be asked to draw on this experience in the service of our undergraduate students and to join the team at Buckinghamshire New University in 2020.
I hold BA (Hons) in Contemporary East European Studies at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London and an MA in Defence Studies from Kings College London. I have also studied land management, gaining an MSc from the Royal Agricultural University. My abiding interest is in competing political systems, some of which I have had the privilege of experiencing close-up and at their most fragile.
I am a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute. I am also proud to have been awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2020 to undertake an international research project, which I look forward to taking forward when the global situation allows.
