About Me

Kat Eghdamian

I am a specialist researcher and expert on religion, forced migration, and minority rights issues. I am currently a PhD candidate at UCL (fully-funded ESRC scholar) and a consultant for the innovation agency Mensch.

My research explores the role of religion in experiences of and responses to complex emergencies, with a focus on the current Syria crisis. I also love to muse about other topics including gender equality and freedom of religion and belief, so I write about them sporadically here.

I hold an MPhil in Development Studies from the University of Oxford, an MSc in Sociology from the LSE, and am admitted as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand. I have teaching experiences from the University of Otago, University of Auckland, and the London School of Economics.
