Biography

 I am Reader in International Relations and Middle East Studies in the War Studies Department at King’s College London. I obtained my PhD from the School of Oriental and African Studies from London University. My research interests and teaching focus on Middle East politics generally and Syria, Lebanon and Iraq in particular. My work deals with the political economy of corruption, authoritarian governance, refugee issues, and conflict. I authored several articles in academic journals and edited volumes and Spoils of Truce: Corruption and State Building in Post-War Lebanon (Cornell University Press 2012). I formerly worked for the International Crisis Group based in Beirut, and for the University of Amsterdam.
