My name is pronounced
I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton
University and a Graduate Fellow at the
Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies. My research
and teaching interests include international
rights and humanitarianism, forced migration, and Middle East politics.
My dissertation, "Selective Sovereignty: Foreign Policy, Ethnic Identity, and the Politics of Asylum," examines
the international and domestic factors that shape countries' responses
to refugees. This research has received funding from the
Science Foundation, the Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice,
and the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
I hold an MA in Political Science from McGill University,
as well as an MA in Economics and a BA in
Political Science and in Economics from the American University in Cairo.
