​​I am a scholar, educator and performer dedicated to illuminating histories of Middle Eastern Americans in the modern era.

I received my PhD in American Studies from George Washington University in Summer 2021, and will be a Fulbright US Teaching Scholar at American University in Cairo in the History Department in the coming year. I also hold degrees from NYU and Yale. 

An appreciation for diversity, and especially marginalized forms of difference is at the core of my scholarship, teaching and unflagging commitment to service and activism.  I see changing minds and driving institutional change around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as my calling, and am committed to driving institutional change that empowers all of us to be our truest and fullest selves.
