I am happy to advise graduate and undergraduate student projects on a number of topics, such as: migrants and refugees; development; identity politics (including gender, race, ethnicity, class); globalization; policing and security (especially ethnographic studies of 'the everyday'); social movements; critical theory; and cultural studies.

If you are considering a topic that I have not listed here, yet you think I am the right person to advise you anyway, please contact me and discuss your idea.
