I am a Ph.D. student in Security Studies at the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs at the University of Central Florida. I received my Master of Arts in Political Science at the University of Central Florida in 2019. During this time, I also served as a Resident Graduate Fellow to the Prince Mohammed Bin Fahd Program of Strategic Research and Studies. My research interests are in the field of comparative politics with a regional focus in the Middle East and North Africa. Specifically, my research considers the role civil-military relations play in shaping outcomes such as coups d’état, democratization, and political coalitions in authoritarian contexts. My work has been published in outlets such as the Journal of Global Security Studies, Tawazun: Index of Arab Civil-Military Relations, and Political Violence @ a Glance.
