She is an interdisciplinary scholar deeply engaged in legal, ethnographic, and archival theory and methodology.

She is published in peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes on religion, politics, legal systems, the modern Middle East, and the Iran-Iraq War.

She has provided analysis and commentary to Washington, D.C. think-tanks as well as the BBC, al-Jazeera, and others.
