About me:

I received my Ph.D. in French Comparative Literature from the Université Nice-Côte d'Azur in France, in 2017. My doctoral thesis focused on women’s writing and sociological criticism, as well as on the basics of women's studies and gender studies.

Given my great interest in French linguistics, I decided to undertake another PhD in this field with a specialization in computational linguistics and gender studies. My goal was to carry out research on the "Linguistic Variations of French Misogynistic Tweets in France and Canada”. I am interested in computational linguistics, natural language processing (with Python), sociolinguistics (variations), semantics, morphology and syntax, statistics and linguistics (with R). My supervisor is Dr. Ozouf Amedegnato.

I have held the position of co-president of Vox Condiscipulum, the Graduate student association in our department, since September 2019. I am part of the Editorial board and reviewers for the student-run and peer-reviewed E-journal Interlingua. I am also one of the group of the Canadian co-authors of the Entre Nous 1 Enhanced Teacher's Guide published in 2019. I speak French, English, Persian, and Azeri, and I know some Arabic, German, Spanish and Turkish.

In my free time, I love watching movies and French reality TV shows. I also enjoy hiking, going to the gym, dancing (Salsa, Persian), learning new languages, traveling, discovering different cultures and making friends from other countries.
