Assistant Professor in Sociology, Faculty of Social Sciences
I am an Assistant Professor in Sociology at the University of Nottingham. I received my PhD in sociology from the University of Warwick in 2016. Before moving to Nottingham, I worked as a lecturer at the University of Bristol (2020-21) and a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in medical anthropology at the University of Edinburgh (2017-20). My first monograph, entitled Theism and Atheism in a Post-Secular Age, was shortlisted for the BSA's Philip Abrams Memorial Prize and won the International Farabi Award in 2017. At Nottingham, I teach modules on sociological theories, 'race, ethnicity and colonial modernity', as well as sociology of science and technology.
My research and teaching spans these fields: sociological theory, ethnicity, identity and displacement, religion and activism, sociology of science and technology and medical sociology. Generally, my publications could be put into four categories: global social theory, post-secularism and community activism, sociology of blood and citizenship, and sociology of start-up environments. I am currently working on two monographs. One is the outcome of my four-year-long study of blood donation campaigns in the UK and the other is a theoretical attempt to retrieve a neo-Khaldunian sociology for the twenty first century. I would be pleased to hear from any colleagues or students who are working on related themes.
