I’m a recent graduate holding an MSc in countering organised crime and terrorism. This was an advanced, multi-discipline degree incorporating elements of criminology, international relations, forensic science and security studies. Prior to this, I completed a BA in history. My modules covered modern and medieval European history as well as Islamic, Russian and American history. I work on an ad-hoc basis for private investigation firms and in my spare time I write articles for a number of online publications. I have written on varied topics such as drugs prohibition, the Ukraine crisis, the rise of Islamic extremism, xenophobia in Europe and the British criminal justice system.
