My scholarly interest lies in the focal point between religion, politics and cultural change. Initially focusing on Christian-Muslim relations in the Middle East I later shifted to the context of East Africa and Tanzania.
Focusing mainly on the politisation of inter-religious institutions, I recently focused more on the socio-political ramifications of charismatic Christian and Muslim groups.
My Phd dissertation deals with the presence of Pentecostal mission in the pre-dominantly Muslim setting of Zanzibar. The research focuses on how Pentecostal identity is coined in individuals every-day life marked by religious pluralism, immigration and to a certain degree also sociocultural alienation.
