Biography

I joined the School of Sociology and Social Policy in 2007. On the undergraduate level, I teach two elective modules: Belief, Spirituality and Religion (Year 2); and Exploring Social and Cultural Life through Films (Year 3). I also contribute to the teaching of other undergraduate modules. On the MA level, I convene and contribute to the teaching of Globalisation, Citizenship and Identity. In 2011, I was awarded, by this University, the Lord Dearing Award, for excellence in teaching and learning. In 2016, I was awarded a Staff Oscar for the 'Most Inspiring Teacher' category (Runner-Up).

I am interested in supervising doctoral students working in the following areas: contemporary religious/spiritual identities; contemporary sexual identities; Islam and Muslim communities in the West; youth culture and identities; human rights and citizenship; intimacy, care and relationships; and ageing, bereavement, and end-of-life care. My current doctoral students' research covers a wide range of topics, e.g. asexuality and sociolinguistics; lesbian and gay identities in China and Taiwan; non-binary people and mental health; Inter-generational Muslim women and agency; chemsex and gay men's sexual health; young people in Saudi Arabia.

Recent research projects that I have been involved in includes: Religion, Youth, and Sexuality: A Multi-faith Exploration (funded by AHRC/ESRC); Citizens in Diversity: A Four-Nation Study on Homophobia and Fundamental Rights (funded by the European Commission); and The Last Outing: Exploring End-of-Life Experiences and Care Needs in the Lives of Older LGBT People (funded by the Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme). On the whole, my research aims to contribute to academic, policy, and political debates on social diversity, everyday life, human rights, and social justice. My ORCID ID is: 0000-0002-8727-4201.
