Current Research:

I am interested in migrant families, how they maintain transnational relationships and how they maintain a sense of ‘family’ in the communities in which they settle.  I am also interested in how migrant families present in public spaces, the response of indigenous populations to migrant families in these spaces and, subsequently, the role of ‘family’ and space in community connectivity between diverse communities.  In line with this, I am also interested in the impact policy and press have on public opinion towards all migrant groups, and potentially, community realtions.
