Disrupting conventional thinking about the Middle East and North Africa

I am a researcher of the history and the politics of the Middle East and North Africa, with a specific interest in social movements and political organizations.

My research is focused on the individual human actors that are the agents of all history and politics, with the purpose to explain how psychological factors and personal life experiences shape the political and economic decisions of these actors. I had previously worked on Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and my current project focuses on the politics and practice of Islamic law in Palestine.

My book The Fourth Ordeal: A History of the Society of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, 1973-2013, is currently under review with Cambridge University Press and should be forthcoming in the spring of 2018.
