She has been Senior Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University, and Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of the Aegean. She is currently Research Associate of the Refugee Studies Centre, Queen Elizabeth House, and Lecturer, St Peter's College, University of Oxford.


"This volume is a long overdue endeavour to tackle the thorny and delicate issue of the compulsory population exchange...The argumentative force of the volume lies in the careful analysis of the contradictory and ambiguous ramifications of the convention." -The Greek Review of Social Research
