I am currently a faculty member at the American University of Afghanistan in the Information Technology and Computer Science Department as well as the growing Mass Communication Department.
My work focuses on technology and education in conflict affected areas but my research interests span anthropology and cultural studies, education planning and programming, geospatial mapping and technology innovations, truth and reconciliation commissions and transitional justice, and human rights advocacy. My drive and development philosophy is education, be it human rights education, peace education, or continuing education.
I have a Masters of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies focusing on conflict resolution, human rights law, and anthropology with a BA in anthropology.

Please note: this blog focuses on both my personal reflections and professional research and work.
What’s up with “Bonobolution”? Bonobos are chimps, our distant relatives, who are matriarchal and have their own interesting conflict resolution technique. Olution, comes from evolution, revolution, resolution, solution, and all those other interesting words that end in “olution.” Inspired by the Beatles and John Lennon. It’s not derived from Latin but from my mental wanderings and connections. I do not argue that humans should live like Bonobo’s, or that the Bonobos are in anyway the “solution,” but I have and continue to stumble upon a lot of personal ‘olution’ through resolution, evolution or revolution or some other olution.
