I am a research fellow at the GIGA German Institute for Global and Area Studies in Hamburg. My work currently focuses on the intersection between forced migration, global environmental change, and socio-political upheaval, and on related questions of mobility and climate justice. My regional focus is mainly on the Middle East (Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel/Palestine, Turkey), where I have conducted extensive field research, but I am also engaged in cross-regional comparative projects, including the EU-funded consortium „Migration Governance and Asylum Crises (MAGYC)”, in which I lead a work package on „Comparing Crises. Lessons from «migration crises» in North Africa, the Middle East and the Greater Horn of Africa.“ I hold a PhD from the Center for Conflict Studies at Marburg University, a Master in Peace and Security Studies from Hamburg University, and an M.A. in English literature, Contemporary History and Psychology from Hamburg and Warwick Universities.
