We are expanding our team. Sameer Lalwani will be joining us as a regular commentator at the The Washington Note.
Sameer is a policy analyst with the New America Foundation’s American Strategy Program concentrating on the geopolitics of the Middle East and South Asia.
Prior to joining the American Strategy Program, Lalwani worked at the Center for South Asia Studies and before that as a research assistant for Professor Kiren Chaudhry of the University of California, Berkeley. He is a contributor to the Young Professionals in Foreign Policy blog and wrote for TPM Cafe‘s now successfully defunct Bolton Watch.
He is also obsessed with softball and has enjoyed destroying a couple of the administration’s ball teams — as well as pulling ahead in a squeaker against the Carnegie Endowment.
