In other work, Feyaad studies the intersection of technology and politics and the role of religion in intergroup relations. Across his research, he uses large-scale administrative data, original surveys, archival documents, and in-depth interviews during fieldwork. Feyaad received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Stanford University and a BA in Government from Dartmouth College.
