My research explores the political economy of development in the Arab world. My book project examines the interaction of ethnic politics and trade politics in the region, and low and middle-income economies more broadly. I am also working on projects that investigate the effects of women’s employment on women’s empowerment, and state – business relations in the informal economy. My work has been published in Comparative Politics, the Middle East Journal, and conditionally accepted at the American Journal of Political Science. My publications and drafts of working papers are available on my research page.
