Current research: 

In my dissertation project, The Sexuality of Asylum: Experiences of Queer Iranians in Turkey (preliminary title), I seek to explore the everyday life worlds and migratory experiences of Iranian sexual dissidents who seek temporary asylum and wait for resettlement in Turkey. For this study, I conducted multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in different refugee (re-)settlement cities in Turkey and in Canada between 2011 and 2014. Theoretically, my work draws on postcolonial, queer and feminist approaches to asylum, displacement, migrations, identities, belonging, and everyday life.
