I am a social scientist working working at the intersection of social and visual anthropology, sociology, and political science. I have research expertise in activism and civil society, post-conflict societies, migration, inter-ethnic dynamics, identity and gender. My multi-disciplinary background and commitment to visual, sensory and mixed methods shape both my research and my teaching practice.
Currently, I work at the German Centre for Integration and Migration Research (DeZIM) and the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS), both in Berlin. Before moving to Berlin, I was Thomas Brown Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin and earlier, between 2015 and 2018, I held a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Manchester, during which I researched donor-independent civil society and various forms of everyday activism in Novi Sad (Serbia), Lodz (Poland), Debrecen (Hungary), Manchester (UK) and Cádiz (Spain). Earlier, I lectured at the University of Manchester, held a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Novi Sad and worked as a consultant in teaching methods for a university in Mexico.
