I am from Palestine and my PhD research focuses on the right of return for Palestinian refugees under international law. My research interests are in the areas of Refugee and asylum law, statelessness and human rights Law. I completed a BA (Hons) in International Relations and a BA (Hons) in Social Sciences: International Relations & Combined Studies. I also completed an MA in International Relations. In recognition of my academic excellence, I received a Deans Scholarship at undergraduate level; First Best Year Student Award in International Relations; a Masters Fellowship; a studentship at Ph.D. level. My passion is helping people and being the voice of the voiceless. I am always willing to tackle social injustices head-on. I am known for challenging stereotypes & defending freedom of speech including the right to teach, learn and debate freely. I am also an advocate for women empowerment, gender equality, refugees and homeless people.
