Noa is a PhD student at the European Institute, LSE. Her research explores the cemetery as the site of frictional interactions over nationhood in post-conflict societies. She deals with themes of cultural violence and its impact on the mobilisation of antagonistic collective identities, as well as the instrumentalisation of heritage in nationalist discourses – understanding the implications of these issues for post-conflict peacebuilding and reconstruction efforts.

Noa holds a BA Hons in Modern European Studies from the University of Nottingham, and an MSc in Conflict Studies from the Department of Government, LSE. In 2020, she was awarded the prize for the Best Dissertation of her MSc Conflict Studies cohert. Aside from academia, Noa has professional experience in policy research dealing with hate speech, in public affairs, and in qualitative research for private and third-sector clients.
