I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2018. Prior to this I taught at University of Bristol and University of Manchester. I completed my ESRC-funded PhD at University Manchester in 2016. My thesis critically explored how border controls in the UK and Calais operate through everyday segregation and how an everyday politics of migrant solidarity responds to and resists this segregation. My research interests include critical border and migration studies, 'no borders' politics, postcolonial theory, and critical cosmopolitanism. My current research investigates the development of the UK government's 'hostile environment' immigration policy and everyday resistance to it. My teaching interests include critical international politics, security studies, human rights and critical border studies. I am also keen to further debates around decolonising the study and practice of international politics.
