                                   CV

I am a PhD candidate at the University of St Andrews, where I am writing a thesis entitled "From Jihad-Making to State-Building: Understanding Salafi-Jihadist Insurgent Governance". The aim of my research project is to determine whether there is a specific model of Salafi-Jihadist insurgent governance, which differences and similarities it displays with respect to non-Salafi-Jihadist instances of rebel governance, and what is the relationship between ideology and governance in the case of Salafi-Jihadist groups.

My doctoral research is funded by the Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at the University of St Andrews.

My areas of research are Rebel Governance, Salafi-Jihadism, Political Islam, Insurgencies, Civil Wars and Middle Eastern politics - with a special focus on Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. On these topics, I have written peer-reviewed articles and a chapter in an edited volume and I have addressed academic conferences and policy-oriented conventions.
