I was born on February 26, 1984 in Baku, Azerbaijan. In 2005 I graduated from the Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine Arts with a degree in History of Art. In 2005-2006, I did my military service in the southern region of Azerbaijan.

In 2015, after almost eight years of work in PR, Lobbying, Competitive Intelligence, Strategic communications, etc, I decided to focus on analysis and research of political developments in the Greater Middle East. In particular, my fields of interest include processes in Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the South Caucasus. The main focus of my researches, articles and presentations are Hybrid Wars, Information Wars, countering disinformation and propaganda. I have been referred to and quoted by a number of major Western and regional media outlets. I am always open for knowledge exchange and cooperation with colleagues.
