I am a Lecturer in International Politics in the Department of Politics at the University of Sheffield. Previously, I was Anniversary Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Sheffield (2015–2017) and a fellow of the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice at the University of Nottingham. I received my PhD in Politics from the University of Nottingham in 2015.
My research focuses on the historical sociology of state formation and capitalist development in the Middle East and the political economy of development. I am the editor of States of Discipline: Authoritarian Neoliberalism and the Contested Reproduction of Capitalist Order and have published peer-reviewed research articles in the European Journal of International Relations, Review of International Studies and Journal of International Relations and Development. My thematic review articles and book reviews have appeared in, among others, Development and Change, Review of Radical Political Economics, Cambridge Review of International Affairs and Geographica Helvetica. I contribute to a number of online outlets, including openDemocracy, Jadaliyya, Progress in Political Economy and The Conversation.
