About

I’m a digital media and migration scholar currently working as a Postdoc researcher on a 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 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.

This is a site where I post some of the things I do. But I started it in early 2016 so it only covers the period since then, and not my teaching, supervision, research, and other activities before that time.
