About

I'm an aid worker and have worked for the United Nations in Geneva, the Central African Republic, Kenya (covering Somalia), Jerusalem (covering Palestine), and New York since 2005. I have studied Political Science with a focus on conflict resolution and human rights research, and have published a book and articles in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, Journal of Peace Research, and others.
