I am a media scholar committed to arts-oriented activist media praxis. I have taught and researched in the US/Mexico border region, Denmark, Sweden, Lebanon, and Uganda, and earned my PhD in Communication from the University of California, San Diego (2015). After a postdoc in Media Studies and Refugee Migration at Malmö University, I won a solo grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. My work related to this project included a transmedia storytelling project. With interlocutors from Konstkupan Malmö and the surrounding community, I facilitated a series of online arts workshops during the COVID-19 pandemic, and produced a podcast called Picturing Home. I have recently partnered with The Cultural Avenue Uganda to carry out a digital storytelling project for refugee and host communities, funded by Svenska Institutet's Creative Force Initiative, and am publishing work on podcasting as a community-building and research practice. I am co-director of the MA programme in Media & Communication Studies, and co-director of Medea Lab.
