Aviel Attias Thrilled to discover that someone pays you to write, genius! So, adopting this discovery, I am now a research fellow in a think-tank located in Brussels, where the hot wafels and chocolate streams are at arm's length. I was born in the Middle East, but spent a great deal of time travelling worldwide, especially in Europe. As a citizen of the world (although often condemned by my origins) embracing the corny motto Carpe Diem. My main areas of expertise are the Middle East - alone from finding the best Humus and Shish kebab - I can hold a conversation on Radical Islam and Economical Cooperation between Europe and the Middle East. If you look for a diving partner (and not into books) you can contact me, although I must mention that living in Europe sure teach you on how to become cold-resistant.
