Get In Touch

I am a Researcher and Documentary Filmmaker with a PhD in Social Policy from the London School of Economics and an MA in Documentary Filmmaking from the University of the Arts London.

My interests include media, gender, family law, forced migration, and civil society in the Middle East. In my work I seek to document the voices of people living at the political, social, and cultural margins in the Middle East. I hold several publications on women’s subjectivity and family relations, civil society and counter-terrorism, Palestinian and Iraqi refugees and stateless Bedouin populations, and cultures of representation in Arab media.

My filmography includes “Strata Artist” (Producer – shortlisted for best short documentary at the Open City Film Festival), “Hues of Love” (Director – official selection at the MESA FilmFest), and I am currently directing “The Morganti Rebels” a documentary film on activist art after the Libyan Revolution.

I hold extensive teaching experience in issues related to social policy, development and post-development discourses, civil society, gender relations, policies of forced migration
