She has taught in Tehran, Iran and Jalingo, Nigeria, as well as at Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Albuyeh has also been a teaching fellow at the International School of Theory at the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. In addition, she writes and has worked as a magazine and newspaper reporter and editor for English-language publications in the Middle East.
