My research interests lie at the intersection of Criminology, Political Anthropology and French Studies. I am particularly interested in the “ethnography of liberalisms,” by which I mean an historically-informed and comparative empirical investigation into contemporary formations of global liberal practice. I see my work as contributing to a broader understanding of the ways in which police officers, as political actors embedded in institutions which charge them with the use of particular forms of violence, attempt to link diverse moral and ethical imperatives to the technocratic demands of state administration within the broader context of globalized norms and forms of governance.
