About Me

My primary research interests include religion, forced migration, and minority rights issues. I recently returned from Jordan and Turkey, undertaking research into the experiences of religious minorities among Syrian refugees. Currently a PhD candidate (ESRC Scholar) at UCL and Research Associate at the Centre on Religion and Global Affairs. My background is in human rights law, advocacy, and sociological research. I am also a qualified barrister and solicitor and hold postgraduate degrees from the LSE and University of Oxford.
