I received my PhD from Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg in Germany (2009) where I also completed a Master's (2006). During my master's programme I spent semesters at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa, and Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi, India and prior to that obtained a BA from the University of Tehran, Iran. I taught at Humboldt University of Berlin for several years and held a research fellowship at the University of Sheffield before joining the University of Manchester in January 2018. I am the author of Social Movements in Iran: Environmentalism and Civil Society (Routledge 2012) and the editor of Understanding Southern Social Movements (Routledge 2016). I serve as a board member of the Research Committee on Social Classes and Social Movements (RC47) of the International Sociological Association (ISA) and am Co-Editor of the journal Sociology. In Manchester I work with the research group Movements@Manchester and Sustainable Consumption Institute. I am Postgraduate Research Director for the Sociology Department and teach courses on Southern social theory and social movements.
