Areas of Expertise:
Integration of Ethno-Religious Minorities in Western Europe and the Role of Religion; Discrimination, Health and Well-Being
I am Research Fellow in the department ‘Migration, Integration, Transnationalization’ at the WZB Berlin Social Science Centre and Assistant Professor in Sociology at University College Dublin. I work on how ethno-religious minorities are integrated in societies, for example, in terms of discrimination, gender, health and well-being. To AGYA, I would like to contribute my expertise in the field of migration to address current societal issues and stimulate discussions to foster academic innovation.
My motivation to join AGYA is twofold. From a research perspective, I have a great desire to broaden my horizon. In my experience, seeking inspiration from other disciplines leads to innovation. Through AGYA, I hope to extend interdisciplinary cooperation. From a social perspective, joining AGYA allows me to get to know scholars I would otherwise never meet. Having done extensive research on immigration from the Middle East to Europe, I would like to collaborate on comparative studies including inner-Arab migratory movement.
