Her research interests are broadly in the areas of critical security studies; postcolonial studies; and feminist, psychoanalytic and international relations theories with a particular focus on the politics of identity. Her first book explored articulations of motherhood and social movement formation across three distinctive foreign policy moments in postwar United States in order to shed light into the material and discursive practices that have enabled and constrained particular iterations of American sovereignty. Through this project and others she has become increasingly interested in the 'politics of the body' in terms of the ways that individual and collective bodies negotiate, embody, and subvert cultural meaning in national contexts and the implications for foreign policy and security practice. Currently, she is exploring the limits of discursive approaches to critical understandings of the 'war on terror,' drawing insights from critical psychoanalytic theory, feminist theory, and postcolonial and critical race studies to reinvigorate questions pertaining to the politics of knowing, the role of fear and jouissance in the 'war on terror,' and other embodied experiences of 'being at risk.'
