Field of Interest(s)
Populism, Religion, Nationalism, Emotion, Islam in South Asia
I am broadly interested in the anthropology of Islam, populism, nationalism, and emotion. My research focuses on an emerging Islamic revival movement that seeks to mobilize decentered and dispersed Sufi networks across Pakistan in the name of restoring the honor and respect of religious and national figures, symbols, and institutions in public life.
I received my MA (with distinction) in Social and Political Thought from the University of Warwick in the UK and BS in International Relations and Sociology from Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology in Pakistan.
