I am interested in migration between the modern Middle East and the United States, with a focus on Lebanese migrants in the first half of the 20th century. My current research attempts to connect Lebanese/Arab-American diaspora with processes of nation-building in the post-Ottoman Levant. I hope to expand this project to encompass other major sites of Lebanese diaspora as well as transitory stops in European port cities. Before coming to Binghamton University, I received my B.A. and M.A. in history from the University of Memphis in Tennessee.
