I completed a BA (Hons) in Criminology and Criminal Justice in 2004 and between 2006 -2011 I held the position of a Research Fellow and a Teaching Fellow at the University of Birmingham. In 2012 I was awarded a PhD from the University of Birmingham for my research on the impact of the ‘War on Terror’ on British Muslims, specifically focusing on their experiences and perceptions of the state, the police and Islamic identity. I have been invited to Home Office and United Nations conferences pertaining to the War on Terror.
