ABOUT
I'm currently working on a book: Islamic Terroir: Religion, Land, and Community in Modern Morocco. My research interests include the history of Muslim political, legal, theological, and mystical thought. I am specifically focused on Muslim conceptions of territoriality and spatial belonging, the history of Islam in the Maghreb, and religion and politics/law. In 2018, I joined the faculty in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Puget Sound as an assistant professor of religion.
