I am a Lecturer in the study of religion at Deakin University. I wrote my Doctoral dissertation on the Turkish Muslim transnational organisation known as the Gülen Movement, which was published by Oxford University Press entitled 'The House of Service: The Gülen Movement and Islam's Third Way.' My research interests are Muslim movements, Turkish politics and society, religion and development, and the Middle East.
