Amongst other positions, she has previously held a highly competitive Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowship at the TU Delft and a Max Weber Fellowship at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. She is also a long-term research partner at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. Her research focuses on contemporary urban social configurations and how – in times of datafication – these are transformed through international migration. Based on her expertise in complex urban diversities, her most recent work grapples with questions about how data technologies – specifically geodata applications – shape the way migrants get to access urban spaces and how those technologies exclude migrants from urban life. Her work aims to make visible the migration information infrastructures behind increasingly data-mediated experiences of urban diversity.
