My research interests encompass migration, borders and development, with a particular interest in Mauritania and the regions of West Africa and the Sahara more broadly. I hold an MSc in Sociology, with a focus on Migration and Ethnic Studies, which I obtained with distinction from the University of Amsterdam.
