Sirine received her B.A and her M.A in American Studies at the Sorbonne University in Paris. She is now pursuing her PhD through a dual degree program between Rutgers University and La Sorbonne. Sirine is interested in immigrant workers, collective mobilization and intergroup competition - recently turning her focus onto self-employed immigrants. Her dissertation research seeks to examine the trajectories of New York City street vendors-- Egyptians and Mexicans --and their relationship to labor organizing.
