Expertise Summary

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Politics, History and International Relations, University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus and teach across PHIR's academic program and supervise research candidates at both MA and doctoral levels. My research agenda is cross disciplinary in scope and lies at the intersection of Nationalism Studies, Security Studies and Political Sociology/Sociology of Religion with a primary geographic interest in South and Southeast Asia. Currently, my research agneda contains 2 primary focal nodes: The first node, explores (on a comparative basis) the politics of de-secularisation in Muslim-majority states in South and Southeast Asia - specifically Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Here I am interested in exploring instrumentalisation of sectarian ideology as a mechanism to contain contested nationalisms and governance outcomes associated with aggressive (state-driven) de-secularisation agendas. The second node, explores state and non-states responses to acts of violent religiosity inspired by Islamist ideology in South and Southeast Asia and the security implications therein. Here, I am particularly interested in the governance of CVE initiatives - specifically the area of "resilience" and how state and non-state actors respond to the problem of Islamist-inspired religio-political extremism. I have a number of projects in the works, including two forthcoming projects with Routledge, including a co-authored book on global terrorism and a multi-authored book on on global civil society and the governance state. My PhD (Politics) from University of Newcastle (Australia), which was granted in late 2015. I have have course MA in International Relations from the University of New South Wales and MA (by research) in Politics from the University of Notre Dame Australia.
