I research in the broad areas of sexuality politics and celebrity culture, having published over twenty articles and book chapters in these areas. Books include,Homosexualities, Muslim Cultures and Modernity,published by Palgrave in 2014;Gender and Sexuality: Sociological Approaches with Polity Press(2010, with Stevi Jackson); and Sexuality and Democracy with Edinburgh University Press(2000. The main research focus at the moment is the development of Muslim sexual diversity in the context of international queer politics, Muslim homophobia and Islamophobia, based mainly on my recent book and a four year research grant award from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
