Research Officer (Centre on Migration, Policy, and Society; The Migration Observatory)


My research examines what shapes public perceptions about migration, with an emphasis on the roles of media and language. I also examine how migration research gets communicated and used by groups outside universities such as civil society organisations, particularly through data visualisations. Finally, another interest involves addressing how people engage with border controls that increasingly rely upon algorithms, data, and technologies.
