Preslava is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Global Health and Development. She holds a PhD in International Relations from the Department of Politics at the University of Exeter, BA Magna Cum Laude and a first class MA in International Relations. Her doctoral research studied the development of international legal norms through the lens of social constructivism and the sociology of scientific knowledge. Empirically her work focused on the construction of the international norms banning torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment, the TRIPs agreement in relation to the pharmaceutical industry and the emergence of the norm to prevent catastrophic climate change. Preslava is currently researching the global politics of health and security, health in fragile and conflict-affected states, and human rights. She employs qualitative methodologies and international relations theories to questions of global governance, security politics, policy making, international law and normative development.

Preslava has taught a range of undergraduate and graduate courses at British and American Higher Education Institutions, covering diverse international relations topics including security studies, the politics of public international law, human rights, global governance – actors and institutions, international relations theories, research methods and foreign policy analysis.

Research

My research currently focuses on exploring the relationship between the concepts of health and security, and particularly on re-conceptualising the health-security nexus. I have an interest in the politics of global health governance - including public and private actors, the creation and influence of international legal norms, including human rights norms, and unequal relationships of power. 

I welcome enquiries about research supervision in the following areas:

  • global health politics and governance - practices and institutions
  • implementation of global health-related norms
  • global health and security
  • health in fragile and conflict-affected settings
