Welcome to my site, providing a space to share parts of my research and experience in the field of political science and countering violent extremism. Feel free to browse some of my articles and publications, mainly tackling a range of contemporary topics on processes of radicalization, preventing and countering violent extremism and counterterrorism.
I am passionate about challenging violent extremism and terrorism through action-oriented research and innovative programs that counter hate-based violence globally. My background includes expertise in both far-right and Islamist extremist processes of radicalization, counter-extremism and counterterrorism within a range of socioeconomic and political contexts.
I prefer interdisciplinary approaches harnessing both qualitative and quantitative methods. My experience includes work in the the academic, NGO and private sector; from grassroots program development to policy focussed research and government counsel.
If you have any comments or questions please contact me. I am happy to discuss my research and publications.
