I’m originally from the beautiful mountains of Dhour El Choueir, Lebanon (see photo above). I’m interested in a variety of topics ranging from math and science to philosophy and politics; as such, this blog will reflect those varied interests, and will not focus on any particular theme (but if you have an interest in a particular category, you’ll be able to filter posts by clicking on the appropriate tags).
From a professional perspective, I currently work for ExxonMobil in Houston. More information about my professional experience is available at my LinkedIn profile.
From an academic perspective, I graduated from McGill University in Montreal with a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering, and from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with a PhD in Chemical Engineering, focused on mathematical optimization. I’m also currently pursuing a philosophy degree (remotely) at the University of London, Birkbeck. More information about my academic experience is available at my Google Scholar profile.
From an extra-curricular perspective, I’m a member of the BDS Houston collective, and sit on the Executive Committee of the Houston Palestine Film Festival (HPFF). I also occasionally write for Mondoweiss, and you can follow me on Twitter and on Facebook.
