I am a PhD researcher at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis, under the supervision of Prof. Robin Celikates, Prof. Guy Geltner, and Dr. Hanneke Stuit. My research, which intersects history and political theory, examines formations of resistance manifested in practices of everyday life under conditions of extreme control. At the same time, I teach at PPLE College (UvA), and Amsterdam University College, and work as the research coordinator in the Premodern Healthscaping Research Project (UvA). In addition, I am an associate at the Amsterdam Centre for Middle Eastern Studies.
Since 2017, I have undertaken teaching at PPLE College which offers an interdisciplinary BSc programme in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics at the University of Amsterdam. During this period I have been teaching Rhetoric, Human Rights and Politics, Societal Challenges, and have supervised theses for Politics major students. Since 2021, I am teaching Global Identity Experience at Amsterdam University College.
