I became a MA student in Middle Eastern Studies and Global Policy at UT Austin after receiving my BA from the University of Florida in Political Science. After my undergraduate degree, I completed a Fulbright Fellowship in Duzce, Turkey where I taught English studied Turkish and the Koran with a local imam and a religious leader.
My main research interests lie in modern Middle Eastern poliitcs. As a dual degress graduate student in the LBJ School of Public Policy, my research focuses on the synthesis of political theory and its practical application in the Middle East. I am specifically interested in how language affected the revolutions of the Arab Spring though generally interested in language and political movements throughout the Middle East and Turkey. I hope to write my thesis on the reasons for the variations in the revolutions of the Arab Spring.
