Research Interests

Tentatively, My M.A. thesis will focus on the Druze Revolt of 1925, focusing on the counterinsurgency and insurgency campaigns to craft a political history of the event. My research interests include twentieth-century Middle East and Europe, nationalism, international relations, and global history.
