Nadya joined the department in 2016 after being awarded her PhD (2015) at the University of Reading. The thesis examined the UK counter-terrorism strategy Prevent and its role in governing the Muslim population. Nadya's research interests include the  racialised and gendered understandings of 'terrorism' as a category of political violence, the global proliferation of PVE/CVE programmes and the colonial/postcolonial dimensions of Muslim governance in European states.
