I’m a historian specialising in early Muslim societies. My work has been published in the Journal of Middle East Medievalists and the current edition of the Enyclopaedia of Islam.

In 2018–19 I’m teaching Middle Eastern History at the University of St Andrews while pursuing a PhD in Medieval History at the University of Amsterdam.

In 2013–16 I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), working as part of an international collaborative project called Power and Institutions in Medieval Islam and Christendom (PIMIC). Over the course of this project I spent time as a visiting researcher at Panthéon-Sorbonne, Paris; the School of Oriental and African Studies, London; Tel Aviv University; and the Netherlands Institute in Turkey, Istanbul.

Previously I studied French and Arabic at UCL and SOAS, University of London. I started my graduate career at the Oriental Institute, University of Oxford, in Islamic Studies and History.

  1. Hi,
    I’m following your (hilarious) commentary on Twitter. You reference Karen Armstrong quite a bit. You’re busy, but I would be interested in knowing your thoughts about “a history of God” if you ever post. Just personal curiosity! Thanks
