About the website
This website was realised in order to gather the analyses I have been publishing. It is conceived as a portfolio, rather than as a traditional blog.
I am a Teaching Fellow at the United Kingdom Joint Services Command and Staff College (JSCSC) at Shrivenham, and I hold a PhD from the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. My research focuses on Turkish civil-military relations and their evolution, but my research interests include security sector reform, counter-insurgency, counter-terrorism, intelligence, defense procurement, and NATO CIMIC (Civil-Military Cooperation) doctrine.
In the past, I have worked as Research Assistant for the Defence and Military Analysis Programme at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), and I have acted as expert witness for the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command (SO15), and for the Counter Terrorism Division of the Crown Prosecution Service.
