My research

Place | Mobility | Identity | Storytelling

My research looks at the international mobility experiences of individuals who migrated multiple times - serial migrants. It explores how people negotiate meanings of place and mobility in everyday life stories and the impact this has on identity construction. My interest in the topic stems from my own experiences of multiple migrations – living, working, and studying in different countries throughout my life.

My thesis is supervised by Dr Stephanie Schnurr and Dr Steve Mann.
