Research Interests

Politics of ethnicity and nationalism, minority-state relations, religion and politics, political Islam, and MENA politics.  

Project Description 

My doctoral research examines the intersection of political Islam and ethnic pluralism. More specifically, my research focuses on the treatment of minorities by Islamists in power, and the variances therein.  In doing so, I addresses two central questions: first, how do Islamists treat ethnic minorities? And second, what drives Islamists’ treatment of these minorities? I employ a comparative methodology contrasting minority treatment under Islamists in Sudan and Turkey.  I completed my Master’s degree at the University of Saskatchewan. My thesis examined the secession of South Sudan, for which I also conducted research in the field.

My doctoral research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). 

I am fluent in in Arabic and English, oral and written.
