Areas of interest

My research focuses gender and Islam. More specifically I have done research on urban women’s every day religious practices I the context of the modern religious reform movement in Malaysia. I have also an interest in the gendered dimensions of religious/political activism in Malaysia. Theoretically these themes have urged me to think about how the concept of agency is understood from a feminist and anthropological perspective.

Teaching and tutoring
My teaching experiences range from undergraduate courses in, for example, social anthropology and Asian studies to teaching in the MA programmes in Global Studies and Human Rights. It includes supervision and examination and course coordination on both levels. I am also teaching how to write intended learning outcomes in a course on pedagogics in higher education (HPE102).
