I am a doctoral researcher on the RCN-funded project 'TRUST: Attitudinal Impacts of Refugees on Host Communities in the Global South', where my PhD project uses geospatial data to investigate host community-refugee dynamics related to forced migration and social unrest on the subnational level across non-Western contexts. I am generally interested in the effects and consequences of civil society mobilisation as a call for social change. Previously, I have studied the impacts of organisational participation in civil resistance movements in African countries on post-resistance democratisation.
I am currently on a research stay at the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona, in Tucson, AZ, USA.
