My Research interests bring together the areas of international and EU migration law, migration governance, human rights law, vulnerability theory and citizenship. My research is multidisciplinary and has a strong socio-legal dimension.

I have conducted research projects with the Scottish Refugee Council and the British Red Cross in the area of migrants and asylum seekers’ rights.
