From May 2021-May 2022 I was a Senior Researcher at the Center for Countering Digital Hate. In this role, I used both qualitative and quantitative data to research, monitor and measure online identity-based hate and misinformation and its actors.
I deployed current methodologies and built newer ones to produce agenda-setting briefings, notes and reports. I led CCDH’s Hidden Hate report on misogyny sent to high profile women on Instagram DM, securing access to participants, cataloguing abuse, extracting findings, interviewing participants and curating the information into a report that received extensive media coverage. I built on my extensive OSINT skills and gained a certificate in Excel 1-3.
I have also been working with BBC Arabic as a researcher on an ongoing investigation and have previously completed research tasks for the British Medical Association.
I have worked on editing, proof-reading and sensitivity-reading several non-fiction books.
