I’m a digital media and migration scholar 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’s.
I had received my PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2015 from the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. 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.
I started this site when I began work on the ERC project in March, 2016. Before then, I taught courses, supervised student research, published, presented, and did a bunch of other activities that aren’t included on this site.
