I’m currently a history PhD candidate at the University of California, San Diego, and most recently, a visiting scholar at Sciences Po Paris’ Center for International Studies (CERI).

I’m broadly interested in modern middle eastern and global histories of planning, development, and architecture. 

My dissertation focuses on state modernization, planning, and development in rural Lebanon during the 1960s.

My PhD project has received generous financial support from a number of organizations and programs, including the Fulbright Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Program, Chateaubriand Fellowship Program, UCSD Department of History, UCSD Institute of Arts and Humanities, and UCSD International Institute. 

I’m also a writer and editor, with bylines in several American and Arab magazines and journals, you can find them here.
