Their research interests include rights, migration, asylum and diaspora as they relate to transgender people from the African continent; the bureaucratization of gender in relation to transgender bodies and asylum regimes globally; possibilities for mobility and migration of transgender identified people from, across and within the African region and the history of ‘trans phenomena’ in South Africa.
