  • Heba Gowayed

    Heba's dissertation entitled “Refugees Welcome” examines how newly resettled Syrian refugees make new lives in the United States, and the different experiences of their counterparts in Canada, Italy and Germany. She is interested in how refugees recuperate capitals lost in war and displacement, and how policies help or hinder this process. Prior to beginning her PhD, Heba was a researcher on a poverty alleviation program in Cairo, Egypt.
