I am studying early modern Ottoman and Safavid empires at Stanford University. I started my program in 2016. My research focuses on the formation of the Ottoman-Safavid borderland in the sixteenth century. I am particularly interested in Mongol and Timurid conceptions of political allegiances and their afterlives in Ottoman, Safavid, and Kurdish notions of sovereignty.
My other research interests include Ottoman bureaucratic networks in the Arab Peninsula and the Indian Ocean as well as the anthropology of criminal justice in early modern Eurasia.
