Alex Edney-Browne is a PhD researcher in International Relations at the University of Melbourne. She graduated with a BA Hons (First Class) in Media, Film and Television and Politics and International Relations from the University of Auckland in 2015. Her thesis investigates people’s lived experiences of drone warfare: the emotional, psychological and physiological affects of military drones on people living in targeted areas and US Air Force drone personnel. It posits the drone as an ‘affective interface’, which facilitates human-technology interaction and cross-cultural human-to-human interaction – sometimes in unexpected and subversive ways. Alex’s research is interdisciplinary, engaging with critical international relations, science and technology studies and media, screen and cultural studies.
