PhD Student
Bangor University

In 2020, I commenced my PhD studies in Criminology and Criminal Justice in Bangor University after being awarded a WISERD PhD studentship as part of the ESRC funded WISERD Civil Society Research Centre. In 2020, I received an MA in Comparative Criminology and Criminal Justice (Distinction) while in 2019, I gained a BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice (First Class). My research interests mainly involve far-right politics, political violence, terrorism, hate crimes and immigration. 

WISERD’s project: Policing of borders and migration

PhD Thesis’ Title:  Anti-immigration Vigilantism by the far right at the National Borders: The case of Greece. This project aims at exploring the link between anti-immigration vigilantism that takes place in the Island of Lesvos, Greece and the far-right. The project adopts a qualitative methodological approach. 
The project is supervised by Prof. Martina Feilzer and Dr. Bethan Loftus. 

Borders, boundary mechanisms and migration
Borders, boundary mechanisms and migration examines factors shaping civil society engagement with migration and forms of bordering through comparative international case studies and place-based ethnographies, and explores how social boundary activation mechanisms are
