I am an international student in my fourth year of college. My interests include feminists ethnography, political economy, and postcolonial literature. I am excited to be part of digital humanities community and learn new tools to make and present knowledge in exciting and accessible ways. As a Vivero fellow, I will be continuing my work with Prof. Caleb Elfenbein on the Mapping Islamophobia Project, which aims to document the anti-Muslim hostility that Muslim Americans face and the impact it has on their ability to participate in public life.
