Biography:

I am a PhD student at Michigan State University's Sociology Department. My research areas are race and ethnicity, political sociology, social psychology, and quantitative methods. I’m particularly interested in ethno-sectarian identities in the Middle East. My current research focuses on social distance and sectarian discrimination in Iraq and Lebanon. Prior to attending Michigan State University, I worked as an instructor at the University of Dohuk/Iraq for three years. I was born and raised in Iraqi Kurdistan Region. At the age of 19 I was granted the UNESCO Co-Sponsored Fellowships Program to study in Italy. I have a BA in letters and philosophy and an MA in education earned from the University of Foggia/Italy. I also have an MA in sociology earned from Michigan State University.
