Research Interests

My interests are Middle Eastern social and solidarity movements, decolonialism, state-building, heterodox political economies, and intersections of class and state institutions. I’m also interested in knowledge production, think tank politics, imperialism, and pedagogy. My intended dissertation will study solidarity movements among the disenfranchised during the 1940s-1980 in Lebanon.
