Bio: 

My research is focused on law and immigration politics. I am interested in how administrative agencies and courts adjudicate migration and citizenship questions, and the political responses to judicial involvement in migration matters. I have a particular interest in migrant categorization and the concept of a refugee. 

My book, Let me be a Refugee (Oxford University Press, 2014):
