Foroogh is focusing on the sense of belonging of immigrants to their new home and neighbourhood in her Ph.D. studies of Sociology at Memorial University. Her background in Architecture and Social communication Sciences inspired her to consider the sense of belonging of individuals toward their home and neighbourhood as a key factor in their level of integration with society.
Her research interests also include the space and place, cultural sociology, sense of belonging, and immigration. Foroogh received the Women’s Association of Memorial University of Newfoundland Scholarship in recognition of her academic achievement.
