She is an anthropologist who researches land rights, extractive industries, foreign land grabs, the climate crisis and the militarization of borders in East Africa and the Sahel. Nisrin received her PhD in socio-cultural anthropology from Stanford University in 2019, where her dissertation focused on the ways landholding and landless communities are negotiating and contesting changes in land ownership prompted by a recent wave of Gulf Arab investments in Sudanese land. Before joining Bryn Mawr College, she spent over a decade working as an educator, organizer and advocate on issues related to migrant justice, de-militarization and resource rights through various organizations including Grassroots International, African Communities Together, the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. Her writing on current affairs in Sudan and on migrant justice has appeared in Al Jazeera, the Washington Post's academic blog, OkayAfrica, and the Egypt Independent.
