I am a Social Anthropologist with a Youth and Community Work background, interested in topics around memory, mobility and diaspora. Currently I am working on the AIMEC project exploring 'arrival infrastructures' in East London.

Generally I am interested in topics around diaspora, memory and storytelling especially in regard to youth and intergenerationality. In my ethnographic practice I intend to combine youth work methods and principles with those of ethnographic research.
