Joshua completed his PhD with the ICCS, entitled 'Imagining empathy: counterfactual methods and the US-Iran security dilemma', in March 2017. He is currently a Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Leicester. He is principally interested in integrating multi-disciplinary research on empathy, trust, and emotions with IR work on international conflict, diplomacy, and nuclear politics. To this end, he is currently researching role of empathy in promoting cooperation between adversaries in international politics, using the US-Iran nuclear conflict as a case study. He is also researching Brazil and Turkey's failed attempt to mediate between the United States and Iran in 2010, as well as the relationship between security dilemma theorising and multidisciplinary research on empathy.
