Project Summary

I am a doctoral candidate at the ECPS, where I conduct research on Rawabi, a new Palestinian city in the occupied West Bank. My research project sits at the intersection of urban studies, settler colonial studies, and Marxist political economy. In particular, I am interested in class formation under settler colonialism, and the role of indigenous capital in the production of colonial space.
