Before joining the independent Research Group AIming Toward the Future: Governance, Policing, and Artificial Intelligence, I studied for my MA and PhD at the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. My dissertation considers the organisation of the legal environment in Palestine/Israel, with a particular focus on Palestinian Bedouin land claims in the Naqab region of southern Israel and in the West Bank. The research was based on extensive ethnographic research. I earned my BA from SOAS, University of London. In 2018, I was a visiting fellow at the Centre for Human Rights and Global Justice at New York University, and in 2019/2020 worked as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Lausanne.
