My research focuses on how shifting visions and practices of citizenship and belonging transform transnational mobility, health and care relationships.

My work is situated at the intersections of migration studies, health and social geographies, disability studies, social gerontology and tourism studies. It is concerned with post-national, relational conceptualisations of care, responsibility and interdependence, and the governance of these. 

For more insight into my three main research lines (transnational healthcare, migrant heritage, and disability and travel), visit the pages below.


How are the medical and long-term care needs of different transnationally-mobile populations being supported and met in an era of intensified global mobility?


How can the experiences of transnationally-mobile people be better integrated into the ways in which history is understood and taught?


How do ageing, chronic illness and disability impact travel and recreational experiences and offerings?
