Personal profile

Research Statement

I am a political anthropologist researching conflict and peace, displacement, migration and diasporas, with a particular emphasis on nationalism and anti-nationalism, intra-communal violence, the politics of memory and loss, the social construction of silence(s) and ‘unofficial histories’, post-colonialism and transnationalism. 

I have conducted ethnographic research in Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, and the UK, including multi-sited, transnational and trans-border research between Cyprus and the UK.

I joined Queen’s as Lecturer in Anthropology in 2013 after receiving my DPhil in 2012 from the University of Sussex. I also hold an MSc in Forced Migration (Oxford) and a BA in Social Anthropology (Sussex). I have previously taught Anthropology at Birkbeck (University of London), and the University of Sussex. I have served as features editor in the journal Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism and as Secretary of the Anthropological Association of Ireland.

My research has been funded by the British Academy, the British Council/Newton Fund, the Northern Ireland Department for the Economy (DfE)/ Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

I have contributed written pieces for and made appearances on various media platforms, including openDemocracy, Allegra, BBC Radio Ulster, Greek National Television.
