My research is motivated by my curiosity, since childhood, to understand how everything works.
To do that, I do post-disciplinary social science research using ethnomethodological approaches to practice. In other words, believe the best way to understand how the socio-material world works is to investigate the myriad of micro-level practical actions that make it work; I am therefore more interested in what people do than what they say about what they do.
Thematically, I focus my research attention on people living diasporically - locating themselves between homes in 2 or more places. Specifically, I have researched about Moroccan-origin communities in Europe.
My mission is to reorient research questions about diasporic mobilities away from understandings of diasporicness as a problematic or an ‘other’ way of living, and towards investigations of how diasporic practices create commonplace and ubiquitous social worlds.
