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

After studying at Yale, NYU and George Washington University, I received a Fulbright to teach in the History Department at American University in Cairo. I am now an American Council of Learned Societies Emerging Voices Fellow in the Department of Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies at Emory.
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 building a world that empowers all of us to be our truest and fullest selves.
