I am a political science doctoral student at George Washington University. My research includes the origins of ethnic and sectarian identities in the Middle East, state formation, legislative institutions in Arabian Gulf monarchies, and political violence. My publications include a peer-reviewed chapter titled "Beyond Sectarianism and Ideology: Regionalism and Collective Political Action" in the edited volume Salman’s Legacy: The Dilemmas of a New Era in Saudi Arabia" by Hurst Publishers and Oxford University Press. Alongside participating in other three edited books, I wrote for Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP), Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington, and was a weekly syndicated op-ed writer for the international Arab newspaper Al-Hayat.
