British Academy Postdoctoral Researcher. Humanities, University of Westminster


I am a British Academy postdoctoral fellow at University of Westminster. My postdoc project entitled "Translanguaging as a means of survival in refugee settlements: The case of asylum seekers in Greece" aims to contribute to the theory and practice of translanguaging in times of emergency and survival by drawing on empirical data collected from the refugees who have experienced war and violent conflicts and are now residing in Athens, Greece.
I am particularly interested in language learning and language education among migrants who have experienced war, conflict and displacement.

Research Interests

I am interested in refugees' language practices and the intersections of language, migration and im/mobility.
