Maria's research draws on feminist approaches to war and security. It focuses on gender dynamics of conflict and post-conflict transformation, and the emergence of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda as dominant framework for the articulation of gender concerns in conflict, crisis management and security.
She has also conducted research that critically investigates cross-border cooperation as an instrument of EU border politics and conflict transformation. Her research focuses on the Former Yugoslavia, N.Ireland, EU border politics and peacekeeping.
Maria joined the School of Law and Government in 2016 to work with Dr Ken McDonagh in his Irish Research Council funded project “Add Women and Hope? Assessing the gender impact of EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions”. Exploring the intersections between the Women Peace and Security Agenda and EU CSDP missions, the project offers new insights on the progress and challenges in mainstreaming gender into EU peacekeeping practices.
She is currently working her PhD thesis into a monograph for Palgrave titled “Gender and Citizenship: Promises of Peace in Post-Dayton Bosnia-Herzegovina” (forthcoming).
