I completed my PhD at Sussex University’s International Relations Department. My research focuses on the politics of social transformation in the Arab world, with a particular interest in the writings of Antonio Gramsci and Edward Said, as well as the role of organic intellectuals in instigating social change. My work also explores decolonizing the way in which counterhegemony, human agency and the politics of resistance/social transformation are theorized and conceptualized in the discipline of International Relations -- especially in relation to writings on the Arab world. I've previously held postdoctoral research positions at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs in Stockholm, and at the Council for British Research in the Levant’s Kenyon Institute in Jerusalem – where I was also the institute’s Deputy Director, and remain affiliated.

Among other writings -- I'm the author of The Re-Emergence of the Single State Solution in Palestine/Israel: Countering an Illusion (London, Routledge: March 2015), and of ‘The Single State Alternative in Palestine/Israel’, in a special issue of Conflict, Security and Development which I co-edited with Mandy Turner.
