I am experienced in human rights policy, digital technologies and religious studies research, focusing specifically on social movements in the Middle East and North Africa. I am passionate about immigrant and refugee rights, international human rights, and the role of women, gender, and sexuality in religion. I believe in the power of youth to engender change in the world. As a 2015-2016 Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Turkey, I taught English language speaking, listening and writing classes to Turkish university students. I have experience working in human rights non-profits, and I love exploring new ways to connect teaching with my research interests. I am currently a Masters of Theological Studies Candidate (2018) at Harvard Divinity School focusing on the intersection of Islamic Studies and Women, Gender, and Sexuality in Religion. After receiving my MTS, I hope to pursue a PhD in the study of religion, exploring the liberating potentialities of digital technologies in Islamic feminist movements.
