I have a PhD in Human Geography from Lund University, Sweden. My research expertise spans over three areas. The first area engages with renewable energy studies, energy transitions in North Africa, energy export between North Africa and Europe, green extractivism, occupied territories and energy justice in the MENA region. The second area lies at the intersection of critical and political geography, urban studies, and settler-colonial studies with focus on Palestine. The third area draws upon postcolonial, decolonial and anti-colonial theories in relation to debates on the decolonization of knowledge production and the university.

My current research is engaged with the renewable energy transitions in North Africa and its relationships to Europe through energy partnerships, energy export and material infrastructure.

Prior to joining Radboud University, I did an International Postdoc between the Human Ecology Division, Lund University (2019-2020), the Centre of African Studies (CAS) at Copenhagen University, Denmark (2020-2021). Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies Department (MESAAS) at Columbia University, NYC (2021-2022). Department of Food and Resource Economics (IFRO) at Copenhagen University, Denmark (2023).
