Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests centre on UK asylum policy, with a particular focus on the experiences of LGBTQ+ people seeking asylum and asylum housing policy in the UK. My current project is a collaborative project with European partners on credibility issues within sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) asylum claims. My previous ESRC funded PhD research project focused on the intersection of queer subjectivity, asylum seeking and experiences of religion in the UK context. Alongside academia I have previously worked and volunteered in refugee rights organisations in the UK.
