About Dr Laurie

  • King's College London (University of London)

I hold a PhD (no corrections) in International Relations from the Department of War Studies, King's College London. I hold an MA in International Conflict Studies (distinction) from King's College London and an MA (hons.) in Modern History from the University of St Andrews. I grew up in the international environment of Brussels, appreciating the dynamic community and languages on offer, whilst also attending the British School of Brussels and following the A-Level curriculum. Outside of my academic life I enjoy sports, notably tennis and skiing, and am an avid theatre and art goer. I was heavily involved in societies during my undergraduate degree being a part of a musical production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and gaining the St Andrews Music Department Vocal Scholarship in 2006-2007.

I am an approachable, sensitive, and competent tutor who always takes a considered approach tailored to the needs of a given student. I maintain a balance of academic rigor and making learning and revision fun.

I am currently a doctoral researcher at the LSE's Department of International Relations (IR) - one of the world's leading universities for this subject. As part of my PhD, I have also been awarded ESRC funding, which is highly prestigious (only two awards are made by the department each year). While my specialism is in the politics and IR of East Asia, my broad training and experience mean that I have expertise in a range of IR and political theory, as well as regional expertise in the UK, Europe, US etc.

Previously I obtained a first-class undergraduate degree from Cambridge (Trinity College), and distinction-grade master's degrees from SOAS, University of London and the LSE. My writing has been published in both academic and journalistic sources.

Between my undergraduate and master's degree, I trained as a lawyer and worked for three years at the top international firm Slaughter and May. Ultimately, however, I decided that a career in commercial law was not for me, and returned to university to pursue a career in academia and teaching.

Archaeology, which I studied for my first degree, remains a passion of mine. As my academic career has progressed, I have moved slightly away from it in recent years but it remains an area of study which I still value a lot and try to engage with on a volunteer basis as regularly as possible. The shift I have experienced myself, changing from a science based degree to a far more humanities orientated degree, has really helped me to gain an insight into the scale of change many students can feel moving from GCSE to A-level and then to university and this has been reflected in my approach to tutoring. I always try to show my students that learning should be fun and not as daunting or intimidating as it may first seem. My greatest passion is teaching and I have always loved helping students find their own way around new concepts and also for me to learn from them, which is something with makes one-to-one teaching so fun.

Outside of education my other passions lie in the fields of art and computers. I combine these two interests in my own digital art which is something is really really enjoy. I believe that it is vial for people, no matter what stage of their life they are at, to remain in touch with the things they love and are passionate about, beyond their own schooling or career.
