After studying and teaching in the Islamic Seminaries of Iran for nine years, I have begun my MPhil in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies focusing on Muslim-Jewish Relations. During my nine years in the Islamic Seminaries of Iran I studied and later taught Ancient and Modern Arabic, Greek Logic, Theology, Ancient and Western Philosophy, Islamic History, and Islamic Jurisprudence. I have taught and delivered lectures in universities in different countries such as Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Iran and the UK. In order to have direct access to primary sources I have spent a lot of my time learning languages. I read and write in Persian, Arabic, French, and Swahili and am now studying Hebrew.
In my MPhil my research focus is on the rights of religious minorities under Islamic Law.
