I have been a part-time Academic Advisor at CHC since 2018 when I came to UMass to begin my PhD in Anthropology. I grew in Massachusetts as the daughter of immigrants from the Middle East and although I've spent most of my life in New England, I love traveling to new cities and countries. An experienced educator, I have instructed in the RAP program here at UMass and as an adjunct faculty in chemistry at Greenfield Community College. Before that, I was a high school science teacher in the Boston area for several years. I have completed graduate degrees and conducted research in engineering, the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities and love brainstorming with students about ideas for their honors theses.
