Personal profile

Research interests

My doctoral research seeks to better comprehend the under-researched terrains of masculinity and immigration detention in the UK and explore the complex, intersectional and multiscalar gendered dynamics of identity, power and personal relations that operate in these hidden carceral spaces. By developing recent theory on masculinities and detention, the project will expand understandings of gender, transnational migration and belonging. The research design – a qualitative mixed methods engagement with people inside and outside of detention – will enable me to examine how everyday lived experiences in detention are tied to broader issues including state power and citizenship, border control and the international securitisation of migration. 

I am an active member of the Gender Research Centre, The Centre for the Study of Ethnicty and Citizenship and Migration Mobilities Bristol.

I am a former organising committee member for Refugee Tales, a creative journeying project in solidarity with refugees, asylum seekers and immigration detainees.

I hold a BA in International Relations and Politics and an MA in Migration Studies from the University of Sussex.
