Research student, School of Geography and Planning


My research interests revolve around the social, cultural, political and psychological forms in which space and place may reveal themselves. I am interested in the relation between geography and writing, the loss of place, and the spatial features of power, in particular those built around the themes of migration, otherness, subordination, urban marginalization and borders.

The Democratic Republic of Congo, Portugal and the Mediterranean are my main areas of interest.
