Abroad: Galway, Ireland - Spring 2020
Hind Zahour has been working with Professor Atalia Omer on reading books and research papers and watching documentaries about several conflicts based on racial or religious differences in the Middle East and East Africa. Because of Zahour’s interest in counter terrorism through cyber-security, Zahour has been using her research to draft several surveys sent in countries such as Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, South Africa, France and the United States to get input from people about their opinion on the issue of terrorism and the broader issues of conflicts because of race, ethnicity, religion, etc. This summer, Zahour worked as a cyber security analyst intern within incident response which helped her research the different components of cyber-security and get hands-on experience. Zahour has also been involved in the Girls Who Code student association as the vice president and is currently a teaching assistant in discrete mathematics.
