I am a PhD student in Political Science with a focus on Comparative Politics. My research problematizes fixed definitions of borders through a ground-up ethnographic analysis of public transportation and infrastructure in Israel and Palestine. I am interested in feminist research methods, political ethnography, conflict studies, and political geography.
