Home: Welcome

If you are trying to understand Syria’s political economy, I’m here to help.

Talk to me about economics, politics, or policy issues related to Syria or the region over a cup of black coffee, and you'll have my undivided attention.

I am a Syrian-Kiwi. I work as an independent consultant and a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the New Lines Institute. I am also a founding partner at the Observatory of Political and Economic Networks.

I was a Nonresident Scholar at the Middle East Institute, a Senior Analyst at the New Zealand Treasury, and a Senior Lecturer on Middle East Politics.I offer a range of services that suit varying needs and timeframes.

For media inquiries, click here. Otherwise, I’d love to stay in touch. I usually tweet in English and post on Facebook in Arabic. Don't want to miss out on new publications and engagements? Subscribe to my newsletter:
