2016-2017 Fellow: Timothy Loh
Programs and Administration Fellow - Collateral Repair Project
Hello! My name is Timothy Loh and I hail from sunny Singapore. I am currently a second-year MA Candidate in Arab Studies at Georgetown University, where I also earned my BS in Foreign Service with a major in Culture and Politics in May 2015. Aside from refugees and transnational movements, I am interested in deafness and disability in the Arab world; local, global, and special education; and sociolinguistics in the Middle East and North Africa. I am really excited to be moving to Jordan to work as a MENAR Fellow for the Collateral Repair Project, which is doing amazing work in Amman! I'm looking forward to community, ‘ammiyyeh, and shawarma. Follow me on Twitter @tim_loh
