Main interests

Transnational migration and mobility

Diaspora governance

Migrant entrepreneurship

Labor issues

City making

Processes of ethnicization and multi-ethnicization

Anthropology of policy

China in Africa


I publish in leading journals in Migration and Ethnicity, International Political Economy, and Sociology (e.g. Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Global Networks, International Migration, Current Sociology) and with publishers like Palgrave and Routledge.

My research revolves around different themes.

The first theme is international migration, transnationalism and cultural diversity. This includes a long-term interest in Chinese migration and related labor and social issues in Europe and migrants contribution to city making.

I am also interested in anthropology of policies. I am now conducting research on the intersection of law enforcement and city management, with a focus on selective law enforcement, based on ethnicity.

The pandemic pushes me to also focus analytical attention on the new China’s diaspora governance strategies and their effects on the Chinese diasporics in Europe.
