I was wondering what is the weight of blog entries in a researcher’s CV and whether or not these should be included. Some say blog entries are often seen as popular science and can hinder your CV,…Continue

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford.
I am responsible for leading the project "The Postcolonial Prison: Citizenship, Punishment and Mobility", which is part of a broader research endeavour entitled "Subjectivity, Identity and Penal Power: Incarceration in a Global Age, led by Dr Mary Bosworth, and funded by the European Research Council. Taking Portugal and England and Whales as case studies, “the postcolonial prison” will examine what the increasing number of foreign-national prisoners in Europe may tell us of the role of the prison in carving out national identity, explore whether this bears any relationship to the longer-standing issues of empire and colonialism, as well as map the position of prison within migrants' trajectories and broader global phenomena.
I have completed my PhD in Anthropology at the University of Sussex (2012). My doctoral research looks at experiences of deportation and deportability of foreign-national offenders in the UK. Taking deportation not as an event but as a process that begins far before a migrant is forcibly removed from one country to another, my dissertation examines how migrants’ deportability is experienced in relation to official bodies – such as the Home Office, the AIT, IRCs and Reporting Centres – and becomes embedded in their daily lives, social relations and sense of self. It further looks into the responses migrants devise to cope with, and react to, deportation and related policies of surveillance and control.
Before, I worked in Mozambique and South Africa as an independent consultant for three years, where I was involved in research projects on human security and firearms related violence. I hold a BA in Anthropology (ISCTE, Lisbon, 2001), an MA in Anthropology of Development and Social Transformation (U. of Sussex, 2003), and an MSc in Comparative and Cross-Cultural Research Methods (U. of Sussex, 2008).
