I am a Lecturer in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University. I came to Princeton from Georgetown, where I was a postdoctoral fellow in the 2016-2017 academic year. In the summer of 2016, I received my Ph.D. in political science from UC Berkeley, where I was trained in the history of political thought and comparative politics.
Currently, my research focuses on the political thought of Ruhollah Khomeini and the ways in which Khomeini's thought influences politics in contemporary Iran. On this website, you can find information on my research, academic interests, and teaching.
