Profile: I am Associate Provost for International Affairs in the Office of the Provost (who is Princeton’s chief academic and chief budgetary officer).  I oversee partnerships, policies, and programs that advance the international scope of Princeton's teaching, research, and service mission.  I occasionally teach an undergraduate seminar on Muslims in America through the Department of Anthropology. 

I’ve had a diverse academic and personal journey with many interesting twists and turns.  I was born in Kenya and grew up in Canada.  I finished high school at the United World College-USA in New Mexico and went off to Stanford where I majored in Social Anthropology and minored in Biology and Asian American Studies.  I later studied at Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship and completed an MSc in Refugee Studies, an MBA, and a PhD.  Before coming to Princeton in 2010, I worked in philanthropy and the non-profit sector, on a political campaign, in executive search, and for a summer at an investment bank.
