I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Geography at Kent State University with a research focus in Cultural and Feminist Geography. I have received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Architecture and Environmental Design from University of Tehran and Kent State University respectively. The main focus of my Master’s thesis was on the role of women in the formation of a sense of community in the residential neighborhoods in Tehran, Iran. My dissertation evaluates Iranian female immigrants’ acculturation process by assessing how the immigration and displacement experience influences their psychological health and well-being in the U.S. Especially with considering the political events of the past two years and discrimination toward Iranians.
