His primary interests lie in questions regarding religious identity formation, transnational Islam, and the impact globalization has had on religious traditions and communities. At the Berkley Center, he has worked alongside several affiliate faculty members on a wide range of topics such as the Vatican's position on the United Nations Nuclear Ban Treaty, Catholic-Methodist ecumenical dialogue, and most recently, on transnational religious influences in Muslim-majority countries, viz., Bosnia, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, and the United Kingdom.
