About the Author:
I am a writer and researcher focusing on conflict, peacebuilding and war-legacy issues in Southeast Asia. I have covered these issues and Southeast Asian politics more broadly for publications including The Diplomat, World Politics Review, Southeast Asia Globe, Asia Sentinel and Geopolitical Monitor. I am currently editorial assistant at The Pacific Review journal, and publications consultant for the Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor.
Previously I researched civil conflict in Myanmar and the Philippines, and terrorism in Indonesia, for the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), having researched explosive weapons and the arms trade for Action on Armed Violence (AOAV). I previously studied a B.A. in Human Geography at the University of Exeter, and studied an M.A. in International Relations focusing on Southeast Asia at the University of Westminster.
I update this blog every few months, but examples of my work published elsewhere can be found on the publications page, which is more regularly updated. I am based in the UK (and stuck here for a while amid COVID-19) but have spent much of my time in the region since 2014, covering the ten ASEAN countries (most often found in Vietnam, Laos or the Philippines).
