I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at Université de Montréal. My research focuses on how governments use borders to stop and manage spontaneous migration, and I am particularly interested in the tension between states’ priorities in the area of migration policy and the protection of migrants’ rights. I have published work on the evolution of contemporary European and North American borders in journals such as Political GeographyJournal of Ethnic and Migration StudiesMigration StudiesInternational Migration, and Citizenship Studies.
