I am an international development professional, having worked across Africa, parts of Eastern Europe, the US and UK for ten years for initiatives and organisations improving access to quality education, peacebuilding and gender equality. I am now a PhD candidate in African Studies and International Development at the University of Edinburgh, working in tandem with the African Centre for Migration and Society at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.

I am conducting research into the gendered impacts of urban mobility and migration into South Africa in the context of xenophobic violence and increased hostility towards migrants across the country. My research looks to investigate and contextualise primarily female agency in traditionally patriarchal contexts with increasingly loosely defined boundaries and cultural rules.
