She received her PhD from York University, Toronto, Canada and has held academic positions at Michigan State University, the University of Southern California, and the University of Auckland.

Her current research is focused on understanding the political economy of post-conflict violence against women and the patterns of systemic sexual and gender-based violence in Asia Pacific conflict-affected countries. Recent publications include Reframing Conflict-Related Sexual Violence in Security Dialogue with Sara E Davies and Scandalous Economics: The Politics of Gender and Financial Crises (New York: Oxford University Press, 2016) edited with Aida Hozić.

Her book, The Political Economy of Violence Against Women (Oxford, 2012) won the American Political Science Association’s 2012 biennial prize for the best book in human rights and the British International Studies Association International Political Economy book prize in 2013.

Whilst she is at SGS she plans to work on her analysis of the politics of reporting sexual and gender-based violence in conflict situations in Asia, discussing findings with Maria Stern and Maria Eriksson Baaz working similarly on the complexity of this violence in the DRC context.
She is also participating in forums in Stockholm, Oslo and Lund on the prospects for feminist foreign policy drawing on the Swedish, Norwegian as well as Australian experiences.
