PhD Research

My PhD research focuses on household economics for both working and non-working women in lower and middle class Beirut, looking at their negotiation strategies and power dynamics inside the household. During my fieldwork year, I conducted a representative household survey in Beirut, complemented with interviews with working and non-working women.
