About

My research has an anthropological approach on immigrants' everyday lives in situations of social exclusion. Within this broad field of inquiry, I am particularly interested in: citizenship and illegality; children’s and youth’s agency; social belonging; health inequalities; ethics and interdependence; social and cultural determinants of health and well-being. Currently, I am working in a project on undocumented youth and conceptions of future and well-being in the UK. I conducted long-term ethnographic fieldwork in Canada, Italy and Ireland. In Canada, where I completed my PhD at McGill University, I examined the impact of migratory status on undocumented youth's everyday lives, and how undocumented youth establish a sense of social belonging within socio-political spaces of non-existence.
