About Me

Hillary is currently reading for a doctorate in War Studies at King’s College London, querying whether small states can have a Grand Strategy. She teaches second year undergraduates at King’s on the module ‘Grand Strategy and the Foundations of Anglo-American Statecraft’ and runs the KCL-University of Texas annual Maymester programme on World Order. She also teaches on ‘Introduction to International Relations’ at University College London, and at the Joint Services Command and Staff College (Swindon) and the Royal College of Defence Studies (Belgravia), both part of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom. She served as Youth Ambassador for Malta to the OSCE for three years, and completed an internship at the Malta High Commission to the UK. In 2015 she was appointed an Associate Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society, and in 2016 became a recipient of the U.S. State Department’s inaugural Emerging Young Leaders award for extensive efforts in counter-radicalisation, implementing grassroots educational projects in Malta and the UK, and carrying out peace-building initiatives in the frozen conflict nations of Eastern Europe.
