I am a sociocultural anthropologist studying forced migration, statelessness, and humanitarianism. My research focuses on the lived experiences of displaced Yezidis (Êzîdî), an ethnoreligious minority in northern Iraq, in the aftermath of collective violence and mass displacement. My first book project, On the Margins of Humanity, explores the complex interplay between humanitarian intervention, forced displacement, belonging, and politics of recognition among displaced Yezidis.

I received my PhD in anthropology from Brandeis University in 2022. I am currently Mellon postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at Kalamazoo College. Starting in the fall of 2023, I will be joining Babson College as an Assistant Professor of Anthropology.
