Personal profile

Research interests

My current research interests are oriented around four main areas: 1) the emotional politics of bordering: the politics of dis/comfort, disappointment, alienation, shame and heartbreak; emotional labour and its entanglements with bordering practices; 2) the politics of temporality: waiting and the possibility of politics opening up in the present moment, 3) postcolonial and decolonial theory and borders, 4) political possibilities beyond citizenship.

I joined the Department of Geography at Northumbria University in December 2021 as Leverhulme Early Career Fellow. My project explores migrants’ agencies and experiences of survival and hope through four case studies of European borderscapes: (1) seasonal workers in Germany (the seasonal borderscape), (2) healthcare access in the UK (the healthcare borderscape), (3) deportations in Finland (the deportation borderscape) and (4) migrants living on Greek islands (the camp borderscape).
