 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Since 2007 I am holding a chair in Transnational Studies at the Center for the Understanding of Social
Processes (www.unine.ch/maps-chaire) at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
My research approach represents a contemporary social anthropology that places the understanding of processes of mobility, transnationalism and social and symbolic boundary making in the realm of ethnicity, religion and gender. I have conducted empirical research in Kosovo, Albania and Switzerland using qualitative methodologies, social network analysis and quantitative comparative surveys. From 2005-2006 I was member of the board of directors of the Swiss Forum for Migration and Population studies. I have taught at different Universities and published in German, English and French mainly on topics regarding mobility, migration, transnationality, ethnicity, social networks and culture.
