After two years in preparatory classes to the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Khâgne moderne- humanities) and a BA in History from the Sorbonne in Paris, I completed an MA in Near and Middle Eastern Studies at SOAS. I then worked as the Community Outreach director at the Resettlement Legal Aid Project for refugees in Egypt before coming back to SOAS to start on my PhD project.
I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant (2011-14) and a Teaching Fellow (2014-15) in the Department of the Languages and Cultures of the Near and Middle East. In 2014, I lectured on Arab Cinemas in the Centre for Media and Film Studies.
I am currently a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Department of the Languages and Cultures of the Near and Middle East.
