Saide is a PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Cambridge where she works with the intersections between violence against women and girls, globalisation, and digital technologies. Her PhD dissertation looks into how ‘fem(in)icide’—often defined as the gender-related killing of women—has been conceptualised and quantified across different spaces with a particular focus on Mexico. By zooming-in on practices of data collection and digital data activism, her project traces the controversies that result in how fem(in)icide is being represented, (re)cognised and counted as an epistemic category.
Saide has an interdisciplinary M.A. in Global Studies from the University of Leipzig and the University of Vienna and a B.A. in Communication Sciences from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Amongst other significant contributions, Saide has carried out research for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and ARTICLE19. She is an active member of the United Nations Studies Association (UNSA) and co-editor of the Fem(in)cide Watch Platform.
