Research Focus

I work in the field of humanitarian response and forced migration. Broadly, my main topics of interest are urban displacement, protracted displacement, humanitarian response (including formal and non-formal humanitarianism, refugee-led response, localisation), shelter, home, and hosting, migration policy responses (particularly from countries in the global South), and youth displacement.

I am particularly interested in refugees and IDPs respond to and negotiate displacement contexts. My PhD research conducted at Oxford Brookes looks at household-level hosting practices among refugees in the protracted, urban context of Amman, Jordan.

Before beginning my PhD, I worked as a project manager with INGOs responding to urban displacement, working on livelihoods, shelter and community-based responses to displacement.
