About me

I am a deputy director of studies in the area of Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures at the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies.

My main interests are arab media and cultural studies, gender and masculinities, and critical military studies. I am currently working on my MA, which deals with the Saudi government's use of social media, mainly Twitter, to communicate solidarity with the victims after terrorist attacks. This study utilizes rhetorical criticism to explore “grievability” – that is, whose lives are considered “worthy” of our grief. 

Besides my work and studies, I am also opinion editor for the MENA Magazine, chairperson for the Swedish MENA Association, classical pianist, and an avid SitCom-fan.
