About

My dissertation addresses the role of internet use in processes of urban formation within a low-income area of Tunis, Tunisia. I look at gendered ways in which relationships on and offline effectively build the city. My current research interests include urban anthropology, gender, digital technologies, political anthropology, and forms of egalitarianism.

Following several years of work in journalism, I earned a master’s degree in Sociology-Anthropology from The American University in Cairo. My master’s thesis explored the mutual production of disciplined subjects in Egyptian corporate workplaces and secondary school education, highlighting the centrality of disciplinary norms in neoliberalism. I hold a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Trinity University.
