Research student,

Overview

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Politics and International Relations at Cardiff University. I recently completed an MA degree in International Relations (Diplomacy) from the University of Birmingham and I hold a BA in International Relations and European Studies from the National School of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA), Bucharest, Romania. 


My doctroral research at Cardiff University is focusing on analysing the British Female Radicalisation on Social Media channels, centering my attention on the Islamic State online impact. Besides this, my expertise include Diplomacy and International Affairs, Terrorism & Political Violence, Migration and Human Rights, Asia-Pacific Challanges and International Law issues.


I am a multi-lingual Political Scientist having five years experience as a Freelance Journalist and Researcher. For more details about these activities, please visit the 'external profiles' section, and select 'personal website.' I published papers for the following:
