Audrey is Assistant Professor at the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics.
Previously, she was Lecturer in Politics and
International Relations at Queen Mary University of London, and Fellow
at the London School of Economics and at Sciences-Po Bordeaux, where she
received her PhD in Political Science in 2015. She also held visiting
positions at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India, and at
the Instituto de Relações Internacionais, University of São Paulo,
Audrey’s research focuses on discourse and knowledge, the conditions of their production and their role in society and the world order. Her current research project investigates the knowledge capacities and discursive strategies of small island-states regarding sustainability, environment and climate change, with a special interest for the Commonwealth of Dominica.
Her previous research project explored the impact of Eurocentrism on the globalisation of social sciences through a comparative historical sociology of the internationalisation of International Relations in Brazil and India.
Her work comprises a strong reflexive dimension, exploring the
methodological and epistemological conditions for the critique (and
critical theory) not to reproduce the social and political order it aims
to challenge. She is currently engaged in two research projects
following this line of enquiry: one making explicit the implicit
assumptions behind categories of analysis and one developing a
methodology based on Love.
