My research interests center around religious studies in general and Islamic thoughts in particular. Prior to my appointment here, I have conducted research on the relationship between Islamic thoughts and everyday life of Muslims in Turkey and abroad, utilizing the methods of area studies and Islamic sciences. I have also been interested in the re-emergence of religion in the global context, especially the global activities of faith-based civil society movements.
