I am a political theorist and a policy analyst working at the interface of academia and applied research on migration, asylum, and social inclusion policies.
I hold a PhD in Political Science (Jan 2021) from the European University Institute and am currently finalising a book on asylum and solidarity among EU member states.
In September 2021 I joined King's College London as a Research Associate within the ERC project "Solidarity in the European Union" (EUSOL). In addition, I work as a consultant for the International Organization for Migration and within the H2020 project Whole-COMM. I am also an Associate Fellow at Egmont Institute for International Relations in Brussels.
I have experience working as a consultant for international organizations, national authorities, and international research projects. I have held research positions at the Migration Policy Centre, the Refugee Studies Centre, Carnegie Europe, the Russian International Affairs Council, and Ecologic Institute.
