Professor, Research Institute for Media, Arts and Performance, University of Bedfordshire

My main research interest is Arab journalism, mediated religion and media and gender. Besides my academic experience, I have previous professional experience in journalism as News Producer both for the Danish Broadcasting and the BBC World Service, and I contributed to international media outlets such as the New York Times and Financial Times.

I contribute my expertise in Arab journalism to current trans-national initiatives to promote peace such as the UN Alliance of Civilizations, and I was also the EUROMED and Media representative at the EU Ministerial Meeting on Culture, 30 May 2008, Athens.
