My research intersects gender, work-family balance, and family justice, with a special focus on the Middle East and North Africa. I explore how global socioeconomic shifts and cultural changes, including political instability and the Covid-19 pandemic, have influenced gender dynamics and inequalities. My PhD research investigated the persistence of gender inequalities in Egypt, assessing how economic resources and cultural norms shape women’s family roles and opportunities in the labor market. Recently, my research has extended to the Western context, where I focus on women’s experiences and challenges in family courts in England and analyze their children’s journeys into the care system. My analytical approach is anchored in a strong foundation in quantitative methodologies.
