I am a postdoc at the MOBILE Centre of Excellence for Global Mobility Law. In that role, I focus on how we can map and understand the intersections between international mobility regimes and policy pressures, especially in West Africa.
I have previously completed my PhD project on asylum appeals in the Nordic countries, focusing on how human rights influence this field of practice.
I generally hope to contribute to a better understanding of how national judicial actors draw on, negotiate, and ultimately make, international law - in a domain that is highly politicised, dynamic and challenging.
I teach International Human Rights Law, International Migration Law & The Law of Asylum.
Primary fields of research
Legal theory and empirical methods, International Law, Sociology of Law, International Migration Law, International Human Rights Law, Asylum Practice, International politics
