I’m currently a history PhD candidate at the University of California, San Diego, and 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, including the Fulbright Hays Program, Chateaubriand Fellowship, 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, which you can find them here.
