I am a political anthropologist with a focus on crisis, conflict and crime. I have carried out ethnographic research on issues of youth mobilisation in Europe and West Africa and written on the social and cultural consequences of living in areas of prolonged conflict. My current research looks at transnational crime and cocaine trafficking, from West Africa into Europe, clarifying the networks that young migrants depend on, develop and are caught up in.
