Samir is a 2019 graduate of the United States Military Academy, where he studied military history and physics. As a Fulbright Scholar, he will study for an MSc in Humanitarian Engineering at the University of Warwick. This degree program explores the technical side of humanitarian work in fields including water security, urban planning, and post-conflict reconstruction. Samir plans to focus his individual research on the removal of landmines across varied terrain and diverse societies in Central Africa, Southeast Asia, and Colombia. After one year in the UK, he will return to the US Army and resume his duties as an Engineer Officer, better equipped to deal with humanitarian crises and ready to spread expertise in the force.
