He has a broader interest in critical theory, literature and in questions of representation. Before joining Ghent University, he worked as a researcher at Oxford University’s Refugee Studies Centre and the University of Antwerp’s Centre for Research on Ecological and Social Change, where he obtained a PhD in Sociology.
