As a PhD researcher at the University of Twente, my work focused on the national implementation of asylum policies in the European Union. I held this position as a member of the Post Crisis Legitimacy of the European Union Innovative Training Network, under the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

I am currently employed as an Associate Policy Analyst at the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) – Europe. My work focuses on European policies of return and reintegration, asylum, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on migrant inclusion.
