Biography

I combine the rigour of quantitative data with qualitative assessment to focus on the geo-politics of the MENA region. I am bilingual (English, Farsi-Dari), I have witnessed war and revolution first hand, and I have been involved in research for many years. These enable me to understand the impact of political violence well beyond the confines of the text book. I have been the sole researcher on a project on hybrid war for NATO, and I have developed my capacity to work on quantitative finance. I am highly skilled at data mining and analysis. I have researched and taught extensively and very happy to learn and to be challenged.
