I am Lecturer in Sociology within the Department of Social Science at Liverpool Hope University and member of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies. Prior to this, I taught Sociology at INTO City University, London (2015-2016). Between 2010 and 2014, I was a researcher on the European Research Council funded project (FP7) Oecumene: Citizenship after Orientalism, based at The Open University. This project uncovered new ways that orientalism is conditioning citizenship and drew attention to how citizenship is being generated apart from its Eurocentric foundations. Beyond academia, I have provided research assistance for the following think tanks: Involve, The Runnymede Trust and Demos.
I have a PhD in Politics and International Studies from The Open University (2015); an MSc in Political Sociology from The London School of Economics and Political Science (2009); and a BA in Sociology from Goldsmiths College, University of London (2008).
My research interests are in the shifting patterns of racialization, the making of political subjects, multiculturalism, contemporary European migration, and genealogy as 'methodology'. I am currently finalizing a research monograph entitled Tracing difference management in Britain and beginning a new project on the politics of the Calais 'Jungle'.
