Academic interests:
Lebanon, The Palestinian diaspora, Palestinian politics, rebel governance, refugee camps, political Islam, Arabic language

Since 2013 I have made frequent field visits to the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, and in my academic work I've been interested
in exploring these camps as spaces of national Palestinian politics outside of the homeland. In 2018 I received my PhD after submitting my dissertation called “No one can rule us: politics of exile in Palestinian refugee camp ‘Ayn al-Hilwe (1993-2018)”

In 2019 I will be joining a research project dealing with Rebel governance in the Middle East as a post doctoral researcher.

I have since 2017 been a co-editor of Babylon - Nordic Journal of Middle East Studies.
