Currently working at a DC-based nonprofit that focuses on US policy toward the Middle East and democratic movements within the region. I am also a recent graduate of Ohio State University's Near Eastern and Languages Master's Program and am particularly interested in democracy development throughout the Middle East. I conducted my Master's research on Iran-Iraq border relations in the 20th century with a focus on Khuzestan and the Shatt al-Arab. I am also a proficient Farsi speaker and have lived in both Cairo and Damscus while completing my undergraduate studies at Elon University.
