About

I am a Marie Curie Research Fellow in the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Immigration at Pompeu Fabra University, where I work on questions arising in demography, law, and public policy related to human mobility and migration, social segregation, and disease ecology. I also teach public international law for the Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia and I am a member of the Movement Ecology Lab at the Center for Advanced Studies of Blanes. My training is in a combination of ecology (B.S., Cornell University, 1997), law (J.D., Cornell University, 2003), and demography (Ph.D., Princeton University, 2013). In addition to my research, I have managed refugee relief projects in Bosnia, Albania, and Kosovo, and I have worked as a protection officer for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in Kosovo and Montenegro. I have also served as a law clerk, mediator, and staff attorney for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
