Biography
I am a Pachachi Scholar and doctoral candidate in Politics at the University of Oxford where I write on the survival of Arab monarchies following recent uprisings using comparative and mixed methods.
Research description
My dissertation revolves around a comparative analysis of authoritarian politics and economic policies in modern Arab monarchies, focusing on Morocco and Oman, and uncovers policy-related and theoretical implications of continued Arab monarchical survival. My broader research interests include the study of authoritarian resilience, non-rent accommodation, regime legitimacy, democratic transitions.
