I am a Kabul-based researcher for an international human rights organization.
Previously, I’ve served as the executive director of the Foundation for Afghanistan and assistant editor at Iran Times. I have written for the UN Foundation’s UN Dispatch, contributed to the Soufan Gourp’s IntelBriefs series and blogged on the Huffington Post.
I was born in Afghanistan and have lived a big part of my life in Pakistan. My writings primarily deal with rights, development, security, nation-building, policy, democratization, the media and issues pertaining to Afghanistan (and sometimes Pakistan and Iran).
