I am a PhD candidate in Politics at Princeton University. My interests include Middle East politics, political economy, social movements, and Arabic language.

This year I was awarded the Jacobus Fellowship, Princeton's highest honor for graduate students, awarded to one student annually in the combined social sciences.
