My principal research interests lie in the ‘special relationship’ and public diplomacy. I am particularly interested in how the UK and US used culture to achieve their diplomatic goals in Iran and to attract Iranians towards their respective values and lifestyles.
My future research plans are to build on the foundations of my PhD to further examine Anglo-American foreign policy towards Iran, as well as cultural diplomacy more broadly. I would like to analyse the US sports diplomacy in Iran, as well as anti-Iranian elite and public opinion in America since the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
