I am a PhD candidate in Politics at Princeton University where I research the contemporary politics of the Middle East & North Africa. I write about topics including protest and mobilization, political economy and development, and political violence.

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