Bronte Alexander (born in 1992 in Darwin, Australia) is a political geographer specializing in migration studies. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on international, state, and local responses to immigration, as well as the everyday experiences of migrants at various intersections of identity. She is particularly interested in how migration infrastructure, spatialities, and temporalities shape the urban mobilities of LGBTIQ+ migrants.

Bronte received her doctorate from Griffith University (AU) in 2022 and was awarded the Chancellor’s Medal for Excellence. She is currently writing a monograph with Bristol University Press. As a postdoctoral researcher, she works closely with colleagues in Canada and New Zealand, as well as local government agents and industry partners in settlement services, health, and education. Bronte has presented her work at international interdisciplinary conferences, including at the International Migration Research Network (IMISCOE), and has received several awards for her publications.
