About me

PhD subject
Being white, British and Muslim: Racialisation, representation and identity

I am currently a PhD candidate in Social Psychology examining the racialisation of Islam and its effects on the construction, negotiation and performativity of identity on white Muslims in Britain.

My research interests focus on identity, religion, agency, power and societal change, particularly in exploring religious and cultural representations and identities among the Arab diaspora and Muslims in Britain.

I have previously worked in organisations dealing with documenting anti-Muslim hate crime in the UK, as well as in organisations researching contemporary social issues affecting the Arab and Muslim diaspora in the UK and Europe.
