Dr Pooya Ghoddousi is a Teaching Fellow in Global Migration at UCL. His research focuses on migrant solidarities in urban areas, with the specific case of middling Iranians in London. Pooya’s research uses the concept of nomadism to go beyond socially or geographically bounded notions of diaspora, identity, or community in urban and migration studies. He received his PhD in Human Geography from University College London, MSc in Urbanisation and Development from London School of Economics, and Master of Architecture and Urbanism from Shahid Beheshti University. He practiced and taught architecture in Iran and the UAE before joining the Centre for Sustainable Development to work with and learn from Iranian pastoral nomads.
