I hold a BA in Law from the University of Kent at Canterbury and an LLM in International Criminal Law from the University of Sussex. Before joining the Development Policy and Practice (DPP) at The Open University, I worked for several years as a human rights lawyer in the not-for-profit sector, by providing legal aid to asylum seekers and detained border crossers in Greece.
My current research is on the humanitarian intervention and settlement of various international actors in Greece, in the aftermath of the so-called 'refugee crisis'. Its main aim is to explore the interactional dynamics and power relations between these actors and the local populations of Lesvos Island. My research background is on human rights, refugee law, and critical criminology.
