Kylie was imprisoned in Iran in 2018 on fabricated espionage charges, having been arrested by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps after attending an academic conference. Kylie ultimately served 2 years and 3 months of a 10-year sentence before being freed in a prisoner swap deal in 2020.

A writer and academic, Kylie published a memoir in 2022 titled The Uncaged Sky, drawing on her own lived experience to examine the phenomenon of wrongful detention.

Kylie is currently a Visiting Fellow at the University of Sydney’s Centre for International Security Studies and has been awarded a Churchill Fellowship to research international best practice in arbitrary detention policy.
