Waleed’s PhD was done on the subject of global terrorism, and included a doctoral thesis with the brain-melting title “Towards a Structuration Theory of Global Terrorism.” We’re getting a tension headache just trying to process that alone, TBH.
“It has been a huge undertaking, but at the same time very important to me to finish. There is huge value in the advancement of knowledge and exploration of ideas both on an individual level and to society as a whole.”“I’m delighted to receive my PhD and to become an alumnus of Australia’s largest university.”
