My current research (PhD in anthropology) focuses on the post-Apartheid Afrikaner Diaspora in Australia. As such, my interests lie in processes of loss and change accompanying socio-political transition and migration with its associated workings of grief, mourning and meaning-making. I am further interested in the broader questions linking changing global power relations to questions of belonging and identity, mainly (post-colonial) whiteness.

My background is in African Studies (MPhil, Leiden University), Conflict Studies & Human Rights (MA, Utrecht University) and Language & Culture Studies with a specialisation in International Relations and Diplomacy (BA, Utrecht University). I have conducted research in the Netherlands, Sweden, Kenya, South Africa and Australia.
