I’m an ethnographic researcher and scholar working on digital media and transnationalism. I’ve conducted research in multiple countries on how people experience migration in a world where digital media technologies are increasingly an important part of everyday life.
Currently, I’m working as a Postdoctoral researcher on the ERC Consolidator project, ‘Digital Crossings in Europe: Gender, Diaspora and Belonging,’ based at the Media and Culture Studies Department of Utrecht University.
I received my PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2015 from the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. And my recent book is an ethnographic investigation of web usage practices of second-generation Iranian Americans in Los Angeles around issues of collective memory, racialization, and transnational connections.
