I am an interdisciplinary scholar by training, and I work at the intersection of gender studies, critical race studies, but also sociology of migration, institutions and violence. I am interested in racialisation of social problems and my empirical approach encompasses qualitative research methods, including multi-sited ethnography and expert interviews.

My research interests include:

• Racialisation of social problems
• Postcolonial, subaltern and decolonial theory and politics
• Feminist theory and politics
• Intersectionality and politics of difference
• Critical race studies
• Ethnography of public institutions
