Associate Lecturer, City, University of London

I am an academic researcher, with a PhD from City, University of London.

I have a degree in Law, and an MA in Human Rights Political Science and i'm currently teaching at the University of Manchester, on one of the UK's biggest politics modules; 'Intro to international politics.' I have also previously taught at City, University of London.

My research interests are; US Foreign Policy, the Middle-East, Iraq, US Democracy promotion, imperialism, Elite theory and neoliberalism. My thesis which is currently being finalised looks at the 2003 war and occupation of Iraq by the United States to examine whether it was benign or malign imperialism.

I have also been following the events of Iraqi Kurdistan closely since 2011, measuring the impact of Iraq’s 2005 Constitution on democracy, human rights, and equality in the region.
