I am a PhD student in English, researching modernist heterotopias in Elizabeth Bowen, supervised by Professor Laura Salisbury and Dr. Beci Carver. I obtained my BA (Magna Cum Laude) in 2014 from the American University of Sharjah, majoring in both English Literature and Mass Communication (with a concentration in Journalism).

In 2016, I was awarded an MA with Distinction from Durham University in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Literary Studies. My disseration examined the relationship between mourning and the figure of ‘the gentleman’ in Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier through the lens of Nicholas Abraham and Maria Torok’s theories of cryptonymy.

Prior to starting my PhD at Exeter, I was a visiting researcher at the American University of Sharjah, working under the supervision of Professor Susan Smith to examine historical trauma and perceived cultural losses among United Arab Emirates migrant youths.
