I am a geographer with an urban focus, a migration inclination and a political urge to make sense of our turbulent times.

I am part of three currently ongoing research grants: Transcapes (ESRC/DFID), PUrSI (ESRC Urban Transformations) and Police Science (RCH). I am also an editor at CITY and part of a yet unnamed, but much-promising Athens-based media and research collective.

For regular updates on my research you can follow my blog The Slow and on Twitter.
