  • Director, Centre for Research and Evaluation in Muslim Education (CREME)
  • IOE - Curriculum, Pedagogy & Assessment
  • UCL Institute of Education

My DPhil from the University of Oxford was on philosophical challenges in the pursuit of social cohesion in a multi-cultural society. More specifically, it explored the role of faith schools in liberal societies. I have post-graduate degrees in Education and International Development, Islamic Studies and Business Administration.

At the UCL, I founded the Centre for Research and Evaluation in Muslim Education. Underpinned by the University's commitment to inclusive education and social justice, the Centre seeks to strengthen education in Muslim contexts along the lines of a research based, progressive and inclusive educational philosophy.

I am member of the National Commission on Religious Education. Over the years I have served on the advisory boards of and acted as consultant to several organisations, both nationally and internationally.

Research Summary

I work in four areas: interfaces between religion, citizenship and education; role of imagination in education; teaching about Islam in schools; and contemporary Muslim thought.

Teaching Summary

Masters level courses:
  • Education, Ethics and Imagination in a Globalising World
  • Education and Muslim Communities
