I am a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at York University. My dissertation examines how transborder social movements build sustained solidarity with others, focusing on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in Toronto. My latest publications appeared in New Sociology: Journal of Critical Praxis, and in Terrains Difficiles, Sujets Sensibles, Faire la Recherche Au Maghreb et sur le Moyen Orient.
I am currently teaching at the American University of Beirut. My research interests focus on solidarity movements, social movement in the Arab World, Middle East studies, sociological theory and qualitative research.
