Lecturer in Criminology, University of Brighton

My work focuses on the criminalisation of social movements and practices of resistance. My PhD analysed the process of criminalisation of the squatting movement in the Netherlands, and the complex relations between housing, private property rights and gentrification. Currently, I am exploring the convergence between squatting movements and refugees who use squatting as a mode of resistance to borders and to the modes of criminalisation and victimisation of migration regimes.
My research is informed by active participation in social and political movements across Europe.
