I am currently a research and analysis graduate trainee at the Arab Center Washington DC, a think-tank focused on furthering the understanding of the Middle East in the United States, and on analyzing the impacts of U.S. foreign policy in the region. I am a recent graduate from the University of Oregon’s International Studies & Development Master’s program, and I have work and living experience in Venezuela, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, and Russia. Most notably, I worked with civil society organizations focused on Syrian refugees in Lebanon for my M.A. thesis in 2015 under the UO Sandra Morgen Public Impact Fellowship; in Palestine for the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee in 2016 under the Conni-Slape Fellowship, and I participated in a civil society advocacy project in the Karachay-Cherkessia region of Russia in 2016 for NAN NGO under a U.S. Embassy in Moscow Grant.
