I’m Senior Lecturer in Human Rights of the Americas at the UCL Institute of the Americas. Within my broad research interests in human rights, with a geographical focus on Latin America, I have expertise in the Inter-American Human Rights System, transitional justice, torture prevention, and Brazilian foreign policy and human rights. I have worked with a range of human rights organisations, at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and as a consultant for the Association for the Prevention of Torture and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. I am the academic coordinator of an International Network on the Inter-American Human Rights System funded by the Leverhulme Trust (2014-16), and the co-chair of the London Transitional Justice Network.
I was previously Lecturer at the Human Rights Consortium, University of London, and I’ve taught human rights, International Relations theories and International Security at various Oxford colleges, and at Oxford Brookes University, the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), and at Warwick University. I studied International Relations (DPhil) at Oxford University; Latin American politics (MSc) at the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London; and Philosophy and Economics (BA) at University College London.
