Welcome

I study political economy, political behavior, and political attitudes in the Arab Gulf states, mostly using original public opinion data.  I am also interested in survey methodology in the Middle East context. I am an Associate Research Professor at the Social and Economic Survey Research Institute (SESRI) at Qatar University, where I have been based since completing my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Michigan in 2011. In Fall 2020, I am also Visiting Associate Professor at Georgetown University in Qatar. I lived for two years in Bahrain while doing dissertation fieldwork, and before that I spent two memorable years in Yemen for Arabic language study.

I started this website as a resource for others interested in survey-based research on Gulf politics. Here you can find my updated CV, copies of publications and replication data, as well as information on past and ongoing survey projects.
