Greetings! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the City College of New York. From 2017-2018, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Middle East Initiative at the Harvard Kennedy School. Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Michigan. My research focuses on conflicts over the state and its institutions, with an emphasis on how features of such conflicts vary locally. My background is in the politics of the Middle East and North Africa, with a particular focus on Palestinian politics.
