Research interests: Anthropology of sports, leisure, pop culture; human rights

I hold an MA in Anthropology from the American University in Cairo AUC. My masters thesis “Ultras Ahlawy and the Spectacle: Subjects, Resistance and the Organized Football Fandom in Egypt” won Magda al-Nouwahi award in gender studies for best writing thesis in 2016. I am interested in anthropology of sports, leisure and pop culture.

For ten years, I worked as a human rights practitioner at The Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR). I am the author of the report “The Trap: Punishing Sexual Difference in Egypt”, which documents the state crackdown on the users of queer dating applications especially gay men and those who are perceived as gays.
