I'm a political scientist specialising in the politics of informal and illegal economies, smuggling, the political economy of development, and North African politics.

I am currently a Research Fellow at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and at the International Centre for Tax and Development (ICTD). I am also a Senior Fellow at the Global Initiative against Transnational Organised Crime (GITOC).

My book "Smugglers and States" is now available!

The Routledge Handbook of Smuggling is now available online and for free:
