I’m a digital media and migration scholar currently working as a Postdoc researcher on an ERC Consolidator project, ‘Digital Crossings in Europe: Gender, Diaspora and Belonging,’ based at the Media and Culture Studies Department of Utrecht University’s Humanities Faculty. I started this site when I began work on the ERC project in March, 2016.

Before that, I had received my PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2015 from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My doctoral research was an ethnographic study of web usage practices of second-generation Iranian Americans in Los Angeles, investigating how digital media play a role in matters of collective memory, racial discrimination, and transnational connections for this new generation. In 2017 it was published by Palgrave MacMillan as a book.

Before 2016, I also taught courses, supervised student research, published, presented, and did a bunch of other activities that aren’t included on this site.
