I have a 6-year professional degree (BArch) and qualification in architecture from my home country of Morocco, and I completed a Master in Community Planning at the University of Cincinnati, as a Fulbright Scholar. Prior to starting my PhD in Community and Regional Planning at the University of British Columbia, I worked for five years as an architect and urban designer in Morocco, South Africa, as well as the United States. My research investigates the relation between urban displacement and employment outcomes for low-income groups, with a specific interest in women.
