Aya Fatima Chamseddine

Aya led Synaps’ work on the topics of informal militancy and economic empowerment. A native of South Lebanon, she came to Synaps after a stint in the humanitarian sector, which she liked most for its brevity. She holds a BA in Economics and Management from the Paris-Sorbonne University in Abu Dhabi. She joined Synaps in the hopes of building a career studying the intersection of social, political, and economic dynamics in the Middle East and beyond.
