I am a Lecturer in International Politics in the Department of Politics at the University of Sheffield. Previously, I was Anniversary Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Sheffield (2015–2017) and a fellow of the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice at the University of Nottingham. I received my PhD in Politics from the University of Nottingham in 2015.

My research focuses on the historical sociology of state formation and capitalist development in the Middle East and the political economy of development. I am the editor of States of Discipline: Authoritarian Neoliberalism and the Contested Reproduction of Capitalist Order, and the special issues Decoding the Repertoires of Authoritarian Neoliberalism in Turkey and Authoritarian Neoliberalism: Philosophies, Practices, Contestations (with Ian Bruff).

My research has been published or is forthcoming in the European Journal of International Relations, New Political EconomyReview of International StudiesSouth European Society and Politics, Globalizations, The South Atlantic Quarterly and Journal of International Relations and Development. I teach courses on the political economy of global capitalism, historical materialism and the historical sociology of the Middle East.
