Job title: 
Undergraduate Student

Nadia Kazempoor is a third year pursuing a double major in Political Science and Middle Eastern Languages and Culture. With fluency in both Farsi and English, Nadia has a special interest in learning languages, and hopes to also master Arabic and Turkish in the near future. Her research interests include comparative politics, political psychology, women’s rights, and the Middle East. More specifically, she is interested in the study of political behavior, especially as it relates to the longevity of regimes, dictatorships, and autocracies. Outside of research, Nadia is also involved in Berkeley Model United Nations, the Iranian Students Cultural Organization, Perspective Magazine, and Kappa Kappa Gamma, on top of being a former Summer Intern at the US Department of Education. She hopes to one day attend either law school or graduate school, to eventually pursue a career that works on policy between the US and the Middle East. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her cat, reading, or exploring new places!
