Personal profile

Alistair joined Royal Holloway (University of London) as a PhD candidate in 2011 and, under the supervision of Professor Chris Rumford, submitted his thesis in September 2015.


Alistair currently lectures on three modules (Political Sociology, Advanced Readings in Global Studies and Intro. to Global Studies) at the undergraduate level and continues to work as a research assistant for the Global Studies Association.
