She studies the dynamics of social change, and cultural resistance in Egypt and post Arab-Spring countries. Through her research, she seeks to examine alternative means and modalities of political expression at times of social conflict and uncertainty. Prior to joining Annenberg, she received her Bachelor’s and Master's degrees in Computer Science from the American University in Cairo, Egypt, with a minor in English and Comparative literature. Through her research, she asks how we can think differently about concepts such as democracy, civil society, resistance, cultural politics, and participatory politics, primarily conceived and advanced in Western democracies, in non-Western, non-democratic contexts.
