I am a researcher based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Currently, I work as a program associate/researcher for the Syria Mapping Project at the Carter Center and as a research associate at Critica Research and Analysis. Previously, I worked as a researcher for Hudson Institute and United States Institute of Peace (USIP). I gained my experience from carrying out research in Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Ghana, and India. I received my B.A. from Marquette University, and my Masters in International Affairs from George Washington University. My areas of study tend to focus on Middle East and South Asian politics, political violence, armed actors, and religious politics.
