Trained in islamology, philosophy, and cultural studies at Lund and Birmingham Universities, my research explores the cultural practices, politics, materialities, and aesthetics emerging from religion's engagement with (late)modernities.

My PhD studied Islamic activism, education, and mission (da‘wa) among Muslim minorities in innovative organisational forms and products. In post-graduate research, I followed Islamic children's literature globally, published in Middle Eastern, educational, and literary studies.

I currently research Turkish religious politics and nationalism through the prism of museums, public space, and ritual performance in Istanbul, exploring how memory institutions, artistic practice, and Islamic/Ottoman commemoration coopt in a sacralisation of Turkish memory and space.

In parallel, I conduct a longitudinal life-story project on higher education among refugees in Lebanon, following the long route to, through, and post graduation among a group of young Palestinians.
