I work as a Doctoral Researcher at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). I’m affiliated with the Institute of Sociology and Human Geography at the University of Oslo, where I’m a PhD candidate in Human Geography.
At PRIO I’m a member of the Migration research group. Our work addresses central theoretical aspects of migration, transnationalism, and the ways in which these phenomena are connected with peace and conflict. Insights from migration research at PRIO 2007-2017 have been summarized in a concise booklet.
In 2017-2018 I’ve been engaged as the PhD Representative in the IMISCOE PhD Network. The PhD Network aims to strengthen research and network opportunities for doctoral researchers in the field of migration. It’s affiliated with IMISCOE, the largest European network of scholars in the area of migration and integration.
Before starting my doctoral career, I finished two postgraduate degrees: An MA in Human Geography from the University of Oslo and an MSc in Migration Studies from the University of Oxford. My BA is in African Studies and Human Geography, from the University of Oslo.
