I am Lecturer in Political Economy of the Middle East in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at King's College, London.
My research lies at the intersection of politics and economics, in particular in the areas of distributive politics, social policies, cronyism, and trade.
More recently, I have started to work on civil-military relations and coups, and the electoral sociology of Islamism.
My work combines qualitative and quantitative methods as well as formal modelling.
My regional expertise is the Middle East and North Africa, in particular Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt.
