Employment: Journalist and activist : Syrian American Council
I recently completed a double major in Political Science and Sociology at Columbia University, and am excited to continue my studies at Cambridge, where I will study for an MPhil in Modern Society and Global Transformations. In particular, my MPhil dissertation will examine one or more of the world's seemingly intractable conflicts, using sociology of globalization as a lens. Certain contemporary conflicts appear insoluble due to their profound complexity and extremely high group animosities. However, even these conflicts are influenced, for better or worse, by recent worldwide societal trends. By researching the nature of this influence, I hope to gain insights that will allow me to work toward peaceful resolution of major world conflicts.
