I am a doctoral fellow at the finishing stage of my PhD degree in applied economics. My PhD research focuses on "Gender Agenda in Classroom and Student Academic Outcomes". I investigated how the gender of the teacher and the gender composition of peers in classroom affect student achievement, particularly in the context of Muslim-majority countries where stereotypical gender roles are more pronounced. My research findings are applicable, besides in the examined contexts, in countries with increasing number of immigrants from the Middle-East, those facing challenges of integrating the immigrants into their mainstream society.
