Through ethnographic research in Beirut, Lebanon, she is exploring the mechanisms of gendering political activisms, including the interactions between politics of queer (in)visibility and sexual identity formations and negotiations. In particular, she examines the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon as well as the regimes of NGOization as two key processes that are restructuring Lebanese identity politics.
