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.
