Personal profile

Research profile

I do inter-disciplinary research at the intersection between Criminology and International Relations (IR), including EU studies, African studies and border and migration studies. My doctoral research explores the role of criminalization and crime control (i.e., internal security) in EU foreign policy and external relations: focusing on border security-building, mobility control and internal security assistance in the Sahel region of West Africa. I have extensive fieldwork experience from West Africa (Niger, Mali, Senegal) as well as from Latin America (Colombia and Mexico). My research interests on international crime policy, ‘crimes of mobility’ and European (internal and external) security and Sahel politics also reflect my research experience prior to the Ph.D - as researcher at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). At Aalborg University, I lecture on Global Criminology and supervise MA theses. I am author of four peer reviewed journal articles and several research reports, policy briefs and media reportages.
