I am an anthropologist with experience researching development and humanitarian issues. I have previously worked with Iraqi migrant and refugee communities in the Middle East using methods including participant observation, visual art narratives and biographical interviews, and contributed to the evaluation of a supply chain intervention for family planning in Senegal. I am currently conducting fieldwork in Lebanon on grassroots initiatives led by Syrian displaced health professionals to meet the displaced population’s health needs there. I am also working on the RECAP project which aims at strengthening research capacity and capability to generate knowledge on how to improve decision-making and accountability to help support preparedness and response to humanitarian crises and epidemics.

Teaching

I teach on the Conflict & Health and Medical Anthropology and Public Health modules. I also tutor on the Public Health for Development Msc. 

Research

My research interests fall at the intersection between critical ethnographies of humanitarian and development projects and their everyday enactments and translations into practices and discourses by communities and individuals. I am particularly interested in capturing dynamic processes and pathways by which individuals challenge categories imposed by international institutions (i.e refugee) and develop self-empowerment tools to cope with uncertainty.
