London-based policy advisor and International development consultant.

In 2016, I was appointed by UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon as a member of the Advisory Group of Experts for the Progress Study on Youth, Peace & Security which was mandated by UNSC resolution 2250 (2015)

I research education and migration. My primary areas of interest are the politics, policy and reform of education as well as how and why the private sector invests in education, especially in fragile and conflict-affected states as well as in contexts of forced displacement.

I also research how refugee communities mobilise, organise and influence policy in and beyond education.

I hold a Master of Public policy (MPP) from Oxford University – Blavatnik School of Government & St.Antony’s College.

Fluent in English, French and Arabic
