Welcome to my official website!

I am a professor of politics, public administration, and justice studies. My research focuses on the intersection of public policy and foreign affairs, and I am the author of The Arab Lobby and US Foreign Policy: The Two State Solution. I have concluded another book entitled Middle East Conflicts: The Basics, to be published in 2017 with Taylor & Francis. I also have an article on American alliances in the Middle East and North Africa in the Winter 2015 volume of the Air War Journal, Air University Press as well as a forthcoming chapter in the book Ethnic Lobbying in Congress (SUNY Press). I lecture and write on Arab and Muslim diasporas, particularly their policy preferences and teach American, global, comparative, and Middle East Politics.
