Colleges, School and Institutes
After completing my PhD in Cambridge in 2006, I was a junior research fellow at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge for four years (2005-08, 2011) and a post-doctoral teaching fellow on the interdisciplinary programme of the European College of Liberal Arts in Berlin, now Bard College Berlin (2009-10). This was followed by research fellowships at Orient Institut Beirut (2012), Oxford Brookes University (2013-14), and New York University Abu Dhabi as part of the Library of Arabic Literature project (2015).
My current research interests include:
- Islamic ethics
- Philosophical and theological approaches to the virtues
- Philosophy of religion, esp. the relationship between morality and religion, the problem of evil
- Schopenhauer; pessimism, the problem of suffering
- Wonder; the emotions
