I am a Ph.D. Candidate at Cardiff University. My research is fully funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and its Doctoral Training Partnership program. My research looks at the role of security policy in the reconfiguration regime legitimacy in Egypt and Tunisia in an age of authoritarian neoliberalism. I am a steering committee member of the ISRU (Cardiff University International Studies Research Unit). I write the ISRU blog and look after the website and twitter page. I have worked as an Associate Lecturer and Seminar Tutor in Politics and International Relations.
I have a masters in Politics and Development Policy in Africa and the Global South (Politique et développement en Afrique et les pays du Sud) from the Laboratory of African Studies in the World based at Sciences Po Bordeaux.
