Resident Adjunct, Griffith University

From a transnational feminist approach, my research looks at the violence Central American women experience when they seek asylum. I put refugee issues in the United States in conversation with Europe and Australia and theorize the border as a transnational sovereign assemblage. My academic work has been informed and underpinned by many years working for a number of international bodies—including the UN—in different parts of the world. My research interests center on the intersectionality of feminism, border abolition, humanitarianism, neoliberalism, and colonialism.
