I have conducted interdisciplinary research at the University of Helsinki on immigration detention, and at Kate Hamburger Kolleg in Germany on law and culture. I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow at WWU Münster as part of the CoHAB (diasporic Constructions of Home and Belonging) ITN. My research for this project was entitled ‘Spacing (in) Diaspora: Law, Literature and the Roma”.
This research project examines the interrelationship between law and public space by analysing the punitive measures taken to exclude 'non-sedentary' populations from public space, focusing on the use of Public Space Protection Orders (s59 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014) and the criminalisation of trespass in the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022 (specifically in relation to unauthorised encampments and temporary structures).
