PhD Student, Department of Arabic Language and Cultures, University of Sydney

I am in my final year of a PhD in Medieval Arabic Studies in the Department of Arabic Language and Cultures at the University of Sydney.
I am interested in cross-cultural contact in the Mediterranean in the Middle Ages (roughly 5th to 15th century CE), particularly between Muslims and Christians.
My PhD thesis deals with twelfth-century Sicily and the production of Arabic scholarship under the Norman kings. I have presented my work at conferences in the UK, USA and Australia.
