I am a PhD student in anthropology & peace studies at the Department of Anthropology and The Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame.

My research works bring to question the political and the social using (related) cultural lens, and in that I am more attentive to religious and quasi-religious discourses in South & Southeast Asia, Muslim Europe and the Middle East. Thus my interests are vast and I believe in, and am training with, an integrated approach to anthropological study of social sciences. For my PhD, under a Notre Dame Presidential Fellowship, I am studying the Rohingya refugees in South/Southeast Asia (alongside their microcosmic experience in America), whom I witness beyond trauma and persecution, and through hope, positivity and host-migrant interactional triviality.
