Research Summary

I am a social anthropologist interested in migration and diaspora, the anthropology of Islam, and political economy. To date, I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork in England (Luton and Tower Hamlets) and Bangladesh (Sylhet). 

In Luton, I worked with British-born Muslim men of South Asian origin, exploring their everyday lives in relation to family and community dynamics, approaches to work and leisure, and being Muslim in post-7/7 Britain. 

My most recent research in Tower Hamlets and Sylhet focuses on transnational political formations, exploring political modalities situated in different cultural contexts that borrow from each other to create distinct forms of localised democratic engagement.
