My research is concerned with problematizing scientific and policy discourses relating to global health with a particular emphasis on infectious diseases and (anti)microbial politics. 

(Anti-)microbial global politics (current)

This project traces the effect of an antimicrobial politics in the governance of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in various fields of global health including urban spaces. In turn, it explores the possibility of a microbial politics such as is argued in initiatives such as One Health. 

Pathogenic entanglements (current)

This project traces the way human-animal-microbial entanglements are aggravated by socio-political encounters which lead to a diseased state. 

Critical security methods (2009-2012)

This project explored critical security methods as part of the ESRC-funded International Collaboratory on Critical Methods for Security Studies (ICCM). The edited book Critical Security Methods (Routledge, 2015) develops mapping, discourse/materiality, visuality, genealogy, proximity and distance, and collaboratoration as critical methods for analysing contemporary security issues in International Relations. 

Human security assemblages in global politics (2008-2012)

The ESRC-funded project Human Security Assemblages in Global Politics investigated the assemblages of knowledge and power through which human security is governed today, especially in relation to forced migration (including trafficking) and health security in Thailand and Vietnam.
