Short biography

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Graduate Institute, Geneva, Switzerland.

I completed my PhD in social anthropology from the University of Edinburgh in 2018. my doctoral research focused on the practice of property restitution in post-war Kosovo as implemented by the Kosovo Property Agency (KPA), the administrative, mass claims mechanism put in place by the UN to adjudicate war-related property claims between 2006 and 2016.

I was a doctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle, Germany, between 2014 and 2015. Prior to the PhD, I completed a Masters by Research in Social Anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), London, UK. I received my BA in Sociology and Anthropology from the Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium.

I am the recipient of a series of doctoral grants, and the winner of the 2015 Royal Anthropological Institute Arthur Maurice Hocart Essay Prize. I have also worked as a consultant for, among others, the Swiss Development Cooperation and USAID.
