I am interested in supervising doctoral students working across a range of fields in the ethnography of Central and South Asia, and the Middle East. Thematically, my primary research interests include the anthropology of Islam (and of religion more broadly), ethics and morality, and globalisation. I also have a growing interest in economic anthropology (especially the study of long-distance traders and commodity markets), the anthropology of diplomacy, and the inter-disciplinary study of transnational identity formations, notably those found in business and trading networks/diasporas/communities.
