I am a writer based in Massachusetts. My work focuses on US foreign policy, War on Terror, Islamophobia, surveillance, policing, and development.

I am currently spearheading a public records-based investigative project on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs at MuckRock.

I studied Political Science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (2012) and Social Anthropology at SOAS (2014).
