My research interests lie within the symbolism of transnational movement. I take specific interest in the rituals of the road and the border, the intersection between freedom and constraint in travel, and the (possible) meaning of life “beyond”. 

I joined Remeso in September 2012 as a PhD candidate. I graduated from the University of Zimbabwe with a BA degree in Geography and English, and from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, with an MA degree in Forced Migration.

My research interests include experiences of economic migration, informal livelihood strategies and embodiments of marginal citizenship. My thesis work focus on transnational informal livelihood practices across the South Africa - Zimbabwe border. I am also broadly interested in decolonial thought. 

I occasionally teach on identity politics and global governance in the age of terror.
