About Me

philanthropist in california

I am a Program Director and Assistant Professor with research expertise in philanthropy, public policy, and public leadership. While my professional experience spans nonprofit management, research, and communications; I like to combine my passions to work on projects that are both meaningful and high-impact.

I am the author of two books. My book titled “Remittances and International Development: The invisible forces shaping community”(Routledge Press) will be released in June 2020. This book is co-authored with Dr. Daisha Merritt. 

My first book “Islamic Education in the US and Evolution of Muslim Nonprofit institutions” co-authored with Dr.Shariq Siddiqui (Edward Elgar Publishing) was published in 2017. 

I have a Ph.D. in Planning, Governance, and Globalization from Virginia Tech and an MPA and MA in International Relations from the Maxwell School of Syracuse University. 

As an educator and scholar of philanthropy, I have developed study abroad programs based in Ecuador and Mexico.
