I am a Los Angeles-based online journalist specializing in the Middle East. I recently joined the Global Voices team. Earlier this year, I started the award-winning website Iran Election Watch, which covered Iran’s 2013 elections. Since 2009, I have been involved with the website of Radio Farda, the Persian Service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
