I am a senior lecturer in Peace and Development Studies focusing on peacekeeping and conflict transformation. Prior to joining LNU, i worked at the University of Gothenburg, the Nordic Africa Institute and the United Nations.
In particular, I designed, developed and delivered courses for the Peacekeeping Training Programme of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). Using online or face-to-face methodologies, I trained civilian, police and military staff deployed or to be deployed in a UN led mission in virtually every peacekeeping mission.
I hold a PhD and an MScEcon in International Politics from Aberystwyth University (UK) and A BA Hons in Politics and Peace Studies from the University of Bradford (UK). TEACHING I teach at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels on various subjects including introduction to peace and development, conflict analysis, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, peacemaking, security sector reform and governance reform.

Past research projects focused on religion in international relations, the legitimacy of United Nations peace operations and the non-violent resolution of conflicts using mediation and negotiation.
I engage in consultancy work on peace operations (UN and NATO-led), civil-military relations and conflict resolution. I have trained peace operation personnel, civil society actors and military personnel on conflict analysis, conflict resolution, the UN System and multidimensional peace operations.
