Based on long-term ethnographic research, my work builds upon the fields of critical migration studies, labor studies, and urban studies. My main research area is the role of migrants in processes of urban, regional, and industry restructuring and the emergence of new labor regimes. I have written extensively on the Chinese migrants in the Italian fashion industry. I am the author of the book City Making and Global Labor Regimes, Palgrave, 2017.
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 pushed me to also focus analytical attention on China’s new diaspora governance strategies and their effects in Europe.
