Currently, I work as an early postdoc at the Haute école de travail social in Geneva where I carry out a nation-wide survey on Cantonal dementia policies. I also work as a consultant for the Small Arms Survey.
I hold a PhD in Political Science/International Relations from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva. My doctoral research focused on prostitution policy, the policing of sex work, and the protection of sex workers from violence. I carried out longterm field work in the Geneva red-light district, coded an agent-based model, and tracked the genealogy of the international understanding of the anti-trafficking norm. Additionally, I spent 2018 at the University of California, Berkeley as pre-doc fellow and engaged in additional participatory observation with sex worker rights activists in San Francisco which further informed my research.
I am invested in social justice, the perception of morality, and the relations between those at the margins and the state, specifically state actors such as police officers.
