Virginie joined the department in 2013, having previously worked as senior lecturer in International Relations at Nottingham Trent University, where she also led the MA International Relations course, and as a tutor in Politics at the University of Surrey. Prior to coming to the United Kingdom, Virginie held appointments at George Washington University and Lafayette College in the United States, as well as at Victoria University in New Zealand.

Virginie’s research agenda focuses on Northeast Asia and especially North Korea’s relationship with the international community and therefore bisects a number of other substantive areas such as International Relations Theory, Diplomacy, Conflict Resolution, International Negotiation, International Security, Foreign Policy, Non-Proliferation, Rogue States, Multilateral Security Institutions, and International Organization.
