I am an academic at Aberystwyth University. I am the Director of the Centre for the Movement of People (CMOP) established to investigate human mobility in all its forms including flight and resettlement after conflict and war. My own research specialism includes the history and culture of refugees from National Socialism resettled in the UK. I am interested in comparative studies with different groups of people fleeing from conflict and oppression past, present and future.
