About

I am working in the Horizon 2020-funded B-Shapes project exploring how borders shape perceptions of European societies, with a particular focus on the experiences of minority populations in European borderzones. 

My PhD project used an ontological security theoretical framework alongside creative arts and narrative enquiry techniques to examine the lived experiences of young adult migrants in Glasgow, UK. This research has foregrounded individual perceptions of security, transnational identity negotiation, and the role of (im)migration narratives in sub-state contexts. I have published research in journals including; Comparative Migration Studies, Social Inclusion and International Migration.
