PhD candidate, Kent Law School, University of Kent

I completed an undergraduate degree in Social Anthropology and have now been working for over 10 years with asylum seekers and refugees in the U.K. In 2007 I qualified as a Senior Caseworker under the Law Society's Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme and have since worked for a number of organisations providing advice and representation to those seeking asylum.

I completed a Masters in Research Methods at the University of Sussex and I am currently undertaking a PhD in Socio-legal Studies at the Kent Law School, where I am also employed as a Casework and Research Assistant in the University Law Clinic.
