My research interests focus on education policy, governance and practices in developing nations and conflict-affected societies; education and social cohesion/peace-building; education system convergence and divergence in the global era; and citizenship education in multicultural societies. My research questions are often informed by my own field experiences as an aid practitioner in several country contexts, including fragile ones such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Bosnia & Herzegovina. As an academia in the field of education and international development, I continue engaged in the improvement of practices by working with aid agencies (UN, governmental, NGOs and private ones). More recently, I have been working with a NGO supporting refugee education in the Middle East, and assisting them with their program evaluation design, execution and interpretation of the results. I am also active in research and training in Education in Emergencies (EiE). At University, I teach education and international development, sociology of education, and social science research design at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
