I am undertaking an MSt in Global and Imperial History at the University of Oxford after graduating with first-class honours in History from King’s College London. In 2016, I was awarded the King’s College London Research Fellowship at the European Centre for Energy and Resource Security, where I researched, wrote and published articles on Global Water Security and on Saudi Arabia’s internal and external political challenges in a volatile oil market.

I seek to understand and simplify explanations of critical issues within the wider context to engage people and challenge political apathy.

Topics of interest: resource security, climate change, and Middle Eastern, African, and British politics
