My interest in the Near East took shape towards the end of my undergraduate degree in Social Sciences and Liberal Arts at the Institute of Business Administration (Karachi, Pakistan).

This was a rather unusual turn given my major in Political Sciences.  My thesis was on Fazlur Rahman’s Theory of Prophecy and Qur’anic Ontology, and my focus was on Rahman’s understanding of Ibn Sina and al-Farabi's Doctrines of Intellect and Prophecy. 

Presently, I am working on Islamic intellectual history and Islamic philosophical thought between the 10th and 12th centuries with an emphasis on prophecy and human epistemological capacities.
