Research Associate in British Muslim Studies, Cardiff University

I work as a Research Associate at Cardiff University’s Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK, where I earlier completed my Ph.D. as part of the prestigious Jameel Scholarship Programme. My research interests include ethnographic methodology, intergenerational transmission of Islam in Britain and the relationship of Islam with modernity. My disciplinary approach is within the sociology of religion with particular reference to the theoretical contributions of Peter L. Berger. My current work seeks to map the way contemporary accounts of Islamic revival intersect with secularisation theory in Europe. I teach courses on religion, theology and qualitative research methods, have supervised numerous undergraduate Islamic Studies dissertations and help deliver the innovative online course Muslims in Britain: Changes and Challenges.
