Research topic: Identity and belonging: Multiculturalism and British converts to Islam

My research focuses on the issues of identity and belonging for British converts to Islam explored through narratives. I relate this to multiculturalism frameworks and debates in the context of Britain and am interested in religious identity, Islamophobia and processes of racialisation and ethnicisation, and religion and secularism.
