I am a PhD student at the Department of Social Policy and Criminology. In my research I am exploring the multiple forms of violence and social harm which irregularised migrants experience at Lesvos Island. I am interested in issues of irregularised migration, racism, social harm, violence, borders, border control and human rights. I have studied Sociology at the University of Crete and Social Anthropology and History at the University of the Aegean, with a main interest in gender studies. I have worked as a humanitarian worker in detention centers for irregularised migrants mainly at Lesvos Island, but also in other regions in Greece. I have also worked, as a humanitarian worker, in a shelter for refugee women, being victims of torture and trafficking.
