In consideration of my main research areas, geographies of conflict, war and genocide, I am constantly negotiating legacies of violence in pursuing and sustaining exploitive, violent, and oppressive social arrangements within the context of state power.  My research aims to expose and deconstruct legacies of violence that are both systemic in societal relations and embodied as an individual experience.

My current research interests include geographies of ’non-lethal weapons’, intimate writing in geography and genocide memorialization.
