Biography

I joined the School of Sociology and Social Policy in 2007. On the undergraduate level, I usually teach the elective Exploring Social and Cultural Life through Films (Year 3). I sometimes also contribute to the teaching of other undergraduate modules. 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; refugee studies; intimacy, care and relationships. My current doctoral students' research covers a wide range of topics, e.g. asexuality and sociolinguistics; Buddhism and sexuality; inter-generational Muslim women and agency; chemsex and gay men's identity; bisexual asylum seekers; sexual racism and racialised eroticism.

In terms of research, I am currently involved in Negotiating Queer Identities Following Forced Migration (NQIfFM): A Comparative Study of Iranian Queer Refugees Living in Turkey, the UK and Canada (funded by ESRC). Previous research projects 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); 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); and Investigating Factors Predictive of and Associated with Psychological Wellbeing in Transgender People Following Gender Affirming Treatment (funded by NIHR).

My ORCID ID is: 0000-0002-8727-4201.
