Research overview

My research focuses on the intersection of social movements, transnational activism and ideology. Through the study of social movements such as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, I investigate the role that identity, religion, ideology and forced displacement play in bringing about social and political change. I also focus on identity politics, looking at how collective identities are challenged by the emergence of individual agency in social movements that are undergoing internal and external transformations.
