Projects per year
I am a British Academy Post-Doctoral fellow at Bath. Previously, I was Assistant Director of CBRL Amman, one of the British Academy's International Research Institute's and part of The Council for British Research in the Levant.
My background is in political anthropology, where I am a specialist in Syria & Lebanon. My work examines issues of forced migration, humanitarianism, civil war, gender and sexuality, and working-class culture
I have just completed a book manuscript that describes the lives of Syrian migrant labourers in Beirut during the Syrian uprising and civil war. I am now working on my British Academy sponsored post-doctoral research, which examines activist humanitarians responding to the European refugee 'crisis.'
