Bio

Prachi joined CPPF in July 2017. She is a graduate of the George Washington University, and holds a bachelor’s degree in International Relations with a concentration in Security Policy. Prior to joining CPPF, Prachi worked as a Research Associate at the Program on Extremism in Washington, D.C. At the Program, she was primarily responsible for publishing the GW Extremism Tracker, a monthly update detailing terrorism-related activities and legal proceedings in the United States. In July 2017, she published a Lawfare article titled "The Islamic State's Married Ideology: Something Borrowed, Something New," in which she profiled and examined Islamic State enthusiasts who were inspired primarily by al-Qaeda ideologues. Prachi also worked at The Antiquities Coalition, another D.C.-based think tank, where she examined the effects of Islamic State-perpetrated cultural racketeering. She contributed to the Coalition’s project of building a geopolitical heat map to track antiquity looting across the MENA region.
