Research Fellow and Lecturer

 Amory C249d


Amory Building, University of Exeter, Rennes Drive, Exeter, EX4 4RJ , UK

 Office hours:

From Janaury 2021 I am moving to a research role with very few teaching responsibilities. I will not hold regular office hours so please email for an appointment instead.

Students enrolled on GEO2318 (Workplace Learning for Geographers) and GEOM132 (Space, Politics and Power) can expect an appointment within two working days from requesting it.


I am a research fellow at the University of Exeter, where I also wrote a doctoral thesis on Precarious Citizenship: Rights Claims of EU Migrants in the UK. My reseach investigated political action generated by free movement before and after the 2016 EU referendum. It cast vulnerability as a source of political mobilisation and argued that politics enacted through citizenship is iterative: repetitious and rebelliouis at once.

My current research is focussed on algorythmic politics and administrative justice in the EU Settlement Scheme. This Scheme is a policy framework and an administrative process designed to transfer EU, EEA, and Swiss residents and family members currently living in the UK into the UK’s immigration system. This research is ortiented towards generating knowledge and enagagement, and conducted in partnership with the3million, the leading civil rights campaign of EU citizens in the UK.

I spoke about my research on EU citizens' rights to a number of broadcast media including BBC Radio 4 and LBC Radio, as well as print media including Al Jazeera, the Atlantic, the Economist, Europe Street News, the Financial Times, the Guardian, and the Independent.

I also provided written and oral evidence on the EU Settlement Scheme to a number of public bodies, including the House of Commons Committee on the Future Relationship with the European Union.

Before my doctoral studies, I worked on community development and migrant rights in Bristol. I currently volunteer as a research associate with the3million, and as a trustee with Bristol Somali Resource Centre.

I am supportive of widening participation in higher education, and always keen to chat about feeling out of place in the academia. Just get in touch.
