I joined the University of Leeds in 2008 for my undergraduate degree and, with the exception of my Masters year, have been based at Leeds since. After working at the LifeLong Learning Centre at the University of Leeds during my PhD, I joined the School of Sociology and Social Policy in 2019 as a Teaching Fellow.
My research interests converge at the intersection of the fields of Critical Muslim Studies, decoloniality, religion and secularism, Traditionalism and the Alt Right.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
