I am a fourth-year PhD candidate in Political Science at American University in Washington, DC, with concentrations in American Government and Quantitative Methods. My research focuses on the psychological underpinnings of public opinion and the statistical advancement of survey methodology tools. I also conduct data analysis on causal inference and work as the official replicator for Political Analysis.

I earned a Magister degree in English Linguistics, Communication and Business from the University of Munich. I followed this up with a Master’s degree in Social and Political Thought at the University of Warwick in the UK. In 2009, I spent one year abroad at the University of Adelaide in Australia. The son of cosmopolitan parents, I grew up in Lagos, Nigeria, and Cairo, Egypt, attending German schools there. These experiences have enriched my life beyond belief, and I am grateful for them every day.

My spare time is spent mostly by looking after the creature below. Her name is Muesli (German for cereal). She is a Ridgeback mix who I adopted from a local rescue shelter, and she is always, always hungry (out of frame is a piece of ham dangling enticingly). Whenever I find the time, I also enjoy riding motorcycles and engaging in stand-up comedy.
