Kahina Le Louvier

Research Fellow

Department: Computer and Information Sciences

I am a social researcher specialized in migration and asylum. I am currently working as a Research Fellow on a HORIZON 2020 European project called PERCEPTIONS, which investigates migration behaviour and policies. I hold a PhD in Information Science from Northumbria University. My PhD work was an ethnographic study of the everyday life information experience of people who have sought asylum in Newcastle-Gateshead.
