I am a post-doc at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science with a designated emphasis in Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
My research examines international norms, gender and advocacy, with a focus on the Muslim world, using a mix of quantitative, qualitative and computational methods. My current book project investigates resistance and defiance to international norms and advocacy. (Read more about my research here.)
I developed and taught a new course, PS239T: Introduction to Computational Tools and Techniques, during Fall 2015. I also teach short workshops on WordPress, Drupal, Git, R, Python, computational text analysis, and basic computing for the D-Lab, DH @ Berkeley, and the Hacker Within. I’m a certified instructor with Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry. See my teaching page for information and materials.
