Mohamed Dhia Hammami

I am a Ph.D. student in Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University. I have received a BA from Wesleyan University in Government, and the College of Social Studies, with a certificate in International Relations. I previously studied mathematics and physics at the University of Tunis and statistics and data analysis at the University of Carthage.

My research is on elite survival to political shocks and elite-mass (in-)congruence in the MENA region. I am also interested in the democracy-security nexus. I use a variety of research techniques, including elite interviews, social network analysis, survey data analysis, and archival research.

I have previously consulted for International Alert, Avocats Sans Frontières, the Natural Resources Governance Institute, and Tunisia's Truth and Dignity Commission, among others.

My comments and quotes on Tunisian and Arab affairs appeared in Reuters, AP, AFP, Bloomberg, ABC Radio, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, Al Jazeera English, POLITICO, Le Monde, El Paìs, Al-Ahram, Middle East Eye, The Guardian, CGTN, Christian Science Monitor, Correio Braziliense, VICE, BBC Radio, Middle East Eye, Voice of America.
