I am a Professor of Transnational Studies and interested in understanding  (de)migraticization, mobility, transnationalisation and boundary making, and their concomitant production of inequalities that are related to ethnicity, race, class, and gender. As such my research contributes to three domains: Reflexivities and knowledge production in migration studies, the social organization of 'difference' and mobility studies. 

I am pleased that you are interested in my work and my activities!
