Biography

My research lies in the field of forced migration, in particular the UK asylum determination process, refugee policy, and government engagement with displaced and vulnerable groups.

From May 2017-May 2018 (part time) I will be co-investigator on the AHRC funded project CHAGOS: Cultural Heritage Across Generations, which aims to facilitate the intergenerational transmission of cultural heritage among members of the displaced and dispersed Chagossian community (Principal Investigator Laura Jeffery, School of Social and Political Sciences).

I am also responsible for open access, research data management, and knowledge exchange & impact activities for the School of History, Classics and Archaeology (part time).
