My name is Rose Balicki and I am doing an MSc in Global Governance and Ethics here at UCL! I am originally from Ft. Lauderdale, FL and I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL in international relations. My research interests include (but are definitely not limited to) international relations theory, geopolitics, the effects of colonization, and the impact dystopian fiction can have on democracy. When I’m not doing uni work, you can always find me spending way too much money in Waterstones or trying new cafes around central London. I’m honored to be one of the deputy editors for IPPR this year, and I’m looking forward to not only being able to merge my literary and political interests, but also continuously learning from all our writer’s blog posts and journal articles!
