I am a predoctoral researcher at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), Spain. I am currently working on the ERC Advanced Grant project PATCHWORK "A Network Science Approach to Social Cohesion in European Societies", where I do qualitative analysis of acquaintanceship networks and their relation with social cohesion in European societies. Previously, my research has focused on migration-related issues including asylum and employment in the UK, Human Rights within immigration detention centres in Europe, and housing and migration. Methodologically, I have used qualitative research methods (conducting in-depth interviews, focus groups, and text analyses) and participatory action research. My research has been published in journals such as the Journal of Refugee Studies. I have also collaborated on the project ‘Social Scientists Against the Hostile Environment’ (SSAHE) of the Special Interest Group (SIG) on Refugees, Migration and Settlement.
I hold a bachelor's degree in Political and Administration Sciences from Pompeu Fabra University (Spain) and a Master's Degree in Refugee Studies from the University of East London (UK). I also have a Postgraduate degree in Social Research Techniques at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the University of Barcelona (UB), Spain.
