I am a British anthropologist, currently working at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. My interdisciplinary research focuses on migration and sexuality, law and society, NGOs, and social justice movements. I am a trained documentary filmmaker, invested in sensorial research methods and disseminating my research through innovative fora, from films to podcasts and pop-up installations.
In addition to my scholarly work, I contribute to grassroots and institutional initiatives concerning, in particular, alternatives to immigration detention (ATD), LGBTQ asylum policy and practices, immigrants’ rights, women’s rights, and decolonizing teaching praxis. I regularly write journalistic articles for broad audiences.
The intention of my multidisciplinary and multimedia work is to explore and provide platforms for people to express lives, experiences and viewpoints regarded as, or made marginal in, specific social and political spheres, particularly within the United States and Europe. I value collaborative work and non-hierarchical organizing, and am generally open to opportunities to cover, join, and contribute to social-justice oriented projects. Feel free to get in touch.
