Claire Peacock received her DPhil (PhD) in International Relations from the University of Oxford in August 2018. Claire's research focuses on understanding the rationales behind and the design and outcomes associated with international cooperation, ranging from regulatory cooperation to treaty making. Her dissertation research explored why states include labour and human rights regulation in international trade agreements. Claire's postdoctoral research (co-based at SFU andUniversité Laval) looks at the design and consequences of withdrawal provisions in international environmental agreements. During her post-doc, she will also be completing a project that maps and assesses the structure of offshore financial networks.
Claire is also interested in the application of data science methods to international relations data and works in R and Python. She enjoys teaching IR students the fundamentals of working with data and about evidence-based decision making and research.
