The intersection of social policy and migration policy

My research mainly concerns the intersection of social policy and migration policy. I also have a keen interest in urban politics, and in feminist and critical race theory.

I am currently employed as a post doctoral research in welfare law in the FORTE financed project Advanced legal practices in the welfare state (ARPIS) where we investigate bordering practices in social rights and service provision to undocumented migrants and impoverished EU citizens in a number of Swedish municipalities. 

My educational background is in human geography. I hold a double PhD degree in Urban studies from Malmö University (SE) and Roskilde University (DK). My PhD dissertation, Free to Move Along, was based on an in-depth qualitative study of the municipal-level governance of homeless Roma EU citizens during 2014-2016. The thesis is available here.

Teaching

I teach in the undergraduate program in social work and supervise candidate and master students in social work.
