His research explores local peace processes, examining the impact of inter-group dynamics on processes and the agency of traditionally marginalised local groups, with a particular focus on Yemen. Additionally his research interests are expanding to examine local processes in sub-Saharan Africa and the wider MENA region. He is also part of supporting research into using peace agreements as a source of rapid reaction policy advice.

In 2017 his MSc. dissertation looking at Yemeni voices and political agency in the frame of British policies in Yemen since the 2011 transition, was awarded an archive place in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow.
