Thank you for stopping by. I am [pronounced as] SAAN-EEA. I'm an author, podcaster, informed citizen, a wife, and currently a crypto enthusiast.
I LOVE road trips; if it was possible to drive to the moon, I would drive to the moon instead of flying. I am a curious soul and appreciate experiencing different things. Three facts about my life: 1) Things I fear the most, I love doing the most. 2) Life is the law of exchange; we get what we give! 3) What we resist, Persists!
Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family' —Kofi Annan
I spent over ten years of my career studying military strategy and operations, armed conflicts, and crisis behaviors. In scholarly debates and in my book manuscript (that I am working on for some time), I broadly explore if states could learn to avoid military confrontation and what we can do to prevent a nuclear holocaust.
I started my academic life in January 2011 as a faculty in the Department of Defense and Strategic Studies (Quaid-i-Azam University, Pakistan). Those precious years of my early career gave me endless opportunities to learn and grow from teaching to mentoring students in Pakistan and guest lecturers in the leading think tanks, USAFA, and U.S. government offices in Washington D.C.
I attended several India-Pakistan Track-II dialogues between India and Pakistan studying critical outcomes of military crises in a nuclear environment, decision-making trends, escalation control, war termination approaches, and deterrence stability in South Asia.
I have published work in several academic journals. I have been a visiting fellow of Cooperative Monitoring Center, Sandia National Labs (Albuquerque, NM) from 2016 to 2017 and from 2018 to 2019, a Nonproliferation fellow of CNS (Monterey, CA), and Stanton nuclear postdoctoral fellow at CISAC (Stanford University).
Apart from research, I occasionally host my podcast show 'Women with Ambition' to interview amazing women to share their journeys. The podcast is available on Apple, Google, SoundCloud, and Spotify platforms.
Currently, I am heavily invested with my time and efforts in exploring the new (relatively) financial market of cryptocurrency, blockchain, and other digital assets. I am a co-founder of TheScopeTeam - a blockchain service provider company and have been working on three exciting game/Metaverse projects that are soon to be launched. I am also Chief Communications Officer with two mega VR projects.
