Personal profile

Personal information

I am an anthropologist with a passion for collaborative work with people from different scientific disciplines and professional fields. Ethnography is my core research method, which I use to uncover the voices of people where they tend to go unheard. My research brings people-centred insights to different fields, from healthcare to migration and international development.


In my research, I have a keen interest for issues of power, knowledge, decision-making, representation, equity and social justice. I currently research these issues in healthcare, with work on watchful attendance in midwifery care, safety culture in secondary healthcare, and biomedical research for an HIV cure. Prior to healthcare research, I have many years of experience ethnographically researching humanitarianism, development, migration and its governance.


I have held positions at universities in Italy (Milan-Bicocca), Senegal (IFAN), the UK (LSE, Goldsmiths), and the Netherlands (Erasmus-ISS, VU Amsterdam). Before being an academic, I was an international development practitioner in Sub-Saharan Africa and South-East Asia. Outside work, I am a passionate Instagram user, love meeting people from different walks of life, ride a Cinelli race bike, swim and hike in nature.
