Allston Burr Assistant Dean of Harvard College, Kirkland House
Hello Kirkland! I am thrilled to be joining the wonderful community of Kirkland House with my husband, Ahmed Ragab, our daughter, Carmen and our cat, Jesse.
I was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, where I graduated with a BA in political science from Cairo University. I went on to do my Master’s and PhD in political theory and history in Paris, France at the Paris Institute for Political Studies (Sciences Po).
I’ve been at Harvard since 2007 and have been privileged enough to experience multiple facets of this wondrous place: first as a visiting fellow in the Department of Government, then as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and finally as a lecturer in the Department of the History of Science, where I will continue to teach, in addition to my responsibilities as the ABAD of Kirkland House.
