Alongside my research, I collaborate with industry and stakeholders to better understand and counter online harms stemming from armed conflict, terrorist and violent extremist content (TVEC), and disinformation. This work is broadly falls into three categories of mitigating online harms, high-risk data collection in hard-to-access regions, as well as training, safety, and regulatory compliance. 

My approach focusses on the connection between online and offline harms, and focusses on the specific micro-dynamics of each case. While tracking what is happening online is important and can be readily done by many analysts in the US, UK, and EU, on-the-ground data collection or implementation is often needed to systematically validate new tools, theories, and solutions. Drawing on my background living, traveling, and conducting fieldwork in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia and my current research on online harms, I help bridge the gap between the online and offline and provide fine-grained data and solutions to challenging public policy problems. With a background in government and public policy, I enjoy translating academic insights into actionable recommendations and real-world solutions. If you or your firm is seeking support in addressing one of these challenges and is seeking a tailored solutions, please contact me or schedule an intro call with Calendly
