About me

Wicklow, Ireland 2018

I am Kit and I am a Research Associate at UNU-WIDER.

I completed by PhD in International Relations at the Political Science Department, University College London (UCL), supervised by Prof. Kristin M. Bakke and Dr. Nils W. Metternich. My doctoral study focused on how states affect foreign civil wars, with a specific focus on how diverging forms of external support shape relations among and within rebel groups. The central questions were: Why do states provide different forms of support? What role do external states play in shaping the relations between rebels in multi-actor civil wars?
