I am the Law & Public Policy Fellow at the Center for Global Communication Studies, the Strategic Advisor at Urbane Development, LLC and a Fellow with the Truman Project.
I'm also completing my Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations. My research interests include Islamic law, law and governance in the developing world, religion and state, comparative legal history and U.S. foreign policy.
I've spent eleven years living and studying around the world in Syria, Pakistan, Kenya, Malawi, Yemen, Jordan and Morocco. These days Philadelphia is home.
