My research focuses on the intellectual and social aspects of Islam’s emergence, in particular the Qur'an's relationship to Late Antique literature as well as its textual history. I am also interested in various fields of Islamic learning, especially the sciences of exegesis (tafsir), theology (kalam), and law (fiqh). Currently, I am working on my first book project, which proposes a new reading of major elements of the qur'anic worldview, including the Qur'an’s conception of scriptural and prophetic history.
