Major — Comparative Politics
I started my Ph.D program in the fall of 2015 in Comparative Politics with a minor in Quantitative Research Methods at the George Washington University. My academic background is in international political economy with emphasis on the impact of various economic and development policies on the trajectories of nationalist movements. My research takes an interdisciplinary approach and has focused primarily on the Middle East. Over the past two years, I served as a media consultant at Palestine's General Delegation to the United States. I had also interned at the office of Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) and the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
