My Current Research:

My current research investigates the role of great powers in humanitarian crises. In particular, I am focused in understanding decision-making dynamics that are shaped by concepts of responsibility. This idea is developed through an understanding of theoretical approaches towards responsibility, as well as applying that to the current emergence of the Islamic State(IS).
