Trained in Cultural Studies, and with a Master's in Social Research Methods, Olivia went on to do a PhD in Anthropology at Oxford's Centre on Migration, Policy and Society. Olivia's doctoral research focused on Romanian migrants' trajectories into London's precarious service sector. Drawing on over a year of multi-sited observation, her work unpacks the practices and moralities through which Romanian migrants navigate the neoliberal erosion of social security. Their experience with the dispossession engendered by postsocialism at home, which relegated much of the Romanian rural space to subsistence farming, and their encounters with the precarity inherent in the gig economy abroad. Since 2015 Olivia has also been a co-founder and chair of trustees of the Work Rights Centre, a London based charity dedicated to ending precarious employment. Her interests continue to combine an academic inquiry into migration, disposession, and tactics of survival, with an element of advocacy and third sector work.
