I am currently Project Assistant in the Accountability Unit at the Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development, Jordan, where I work on the planning and implementation of legal empowerment projects for Syrians and host communities, within the humanitarian emergency context.

Previously, I worked in strategic human rights litigation in the UK for three years, challenging high level government policies, often related to armed conflict in the Middle East.

I graduated with a distinction in MA International Law from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), where I specialised in the International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Law, and attained BA Honours in International Relations from the University of Sussex.
