Dr Nilufar Ahmed

Shining a spotlight on the experiences of immigrants and refugees, Dr Nilufar Ahmed of Swansea University opened the Cheltenham Festival with her talk which considered the psychological impact that fleeing political upheaval and arriving in sometimes hostile environments can have on those who have been displaced.
