Kennedy Memorial Fellow at Harvard University (2012–13), and a Marie Curie Fellow at the European University Institute (2008–11). Originally a historian of postcolonial Latin America, he holds a Ph.D. from University College London (2006). His main interests are the modern histories of nationalism, of migration, and of cities.
