Academic Research

I am a second year PhD student at the Department of Politics at Princeton University. My academic research draws on political science, political psychology and sociology and seeks to identify media messaging that can help bolster support for inclusive nationalism, reduce xenophobia and beliefs about exclusive victimhood and sectarianism. I am also interested in public opinion in authoritarian settings, civil wars, and rebel governance. My research focuses on societies in conflict or in post-conflict settings, with Iraq and Syria serving as theory-building test cases.
