Hello, I’m Rushaa (pronounced like Russia),
I’m a researcher, special projects manager, and occasional culture and politics writer, based in London, UK.
My interests centre on identity tensions and interplay. In particular I enjoy looking at race, religion, nationalism, gender, queerness, and how they all interact with each other.
You can find my bylines at Dazed, Buzzfeed, and The Independent amongst other sites.
In 2017 I graduated cum laude from Maastricht University with an M.A. Politics & Society, having focused on the political and social impact of nationalism, populism, technology, and cultural conflicts within EEA region, with emphasis on Muslim communities.
Current & Upcoming Projects:
- Advancing research techniques for study of UK minority populations and bespoke analysis of complex issues (current topic du jour: Brexit) in my role at Survation Ltd.
- Learning the language of R – send tips!
- Working on my essay collection focused on the legal, social, and political contradictions of minority identities in a globalised and shrinking world.
