Atieh is a doctoral candidate in sociology. Atieh's research explores the everyday practices of family lawyers in Iran and their approaches to gender discrimination codified in family law. Her dissertation is a qualitative study that centers on lawyers and divorced women's approaches to the most challenging cases in Iran's family courts—unilateral divorce cases made at the request of women. This study examines how Iranian lawyers — either traditional or activist—participate in promoting or resisting gender inequality by utilizing law-related means such as rights assertion, individual litigation or legal counseling and services. Atieh has also conducted research on the role of the state in controlling women's bodies, the co-option of women's rights rhetoric by the state and the experiences of the survivors of domestic violence in Iran's criminal courts and police departments. She formerly practiced law in Iran where she represented women in cases such as divorce, domestic violence and child custody among others. Atieh has taught Sociology of Law at the undergraduate level and is currently a University Dissertation Fellow.
