Areas of Research: Gulf Cooperation Council, The Rentier State, oil and gas economies. Currently working on the rentier states in the GCC, focusing on the labour markets and their relation to legitimacy as their economies shift to a post-oil condition, and assessing the state's traditional legitimacy tools, specifically the public sector to distribute oil income and gain political support. The aim of this research is to identify the new policies implemented by the rentier states in the GCC to attract their national population to the private sector, analyze them, and assess their sustainability.
