I am a PhD student in Anthropology focusing on memory, historical trauma and space/place-making in Northern Ireland.

Previously I received a BA in Global Health and Social Medicine from King’s College London in 2019 where my dissertation focused on historical trauma in the US.

I completed my MA in Anthropology and Sociology at L’Institut de Hautes Études Internationales et du Développement (IHEID) in Geneva, where I wrote my thesis on Brexit’s impact on political identity and political precarity in Belfast.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Research interests: urban landscapes, historical trauma, (contentious) commemorative practises, collective memory, time and space/place-making, narrative and storytelling, borderlands, walls, post-conflict space, Northern Ireland/Ireland, political identity, precarity, hope(lessness).

My research explores how intersections of time and space, specifically in areas around local 'peace walls', occur and impact shifting political identity, memory and forms of inherited trauma in Northern Ireland's post-Troubles generation.
