I am a Teaching Fellow at the Department of Economics at SOAS.  Currently, I am conducting my PhD on the role that oil played in the process of state-led industrialisation in pre-Revolutionary Iran. I hold a BSc in Business Management from Queen Mary, an MSc in Development Management from LSE and an MPhil in Development Studies from the University of Oxford.
