anthropologist means to be ecclectic by definition. Human beings
come in different colours, shapes and adaptations to natural, social
and cultural environments. However, it also means to spend time
with communities through participant observation and to try to explore
the different ways in which we express our humanity.
During my years of research, I had the opportunity to conduct fieldwork
among different communities, studying related aspects in particular
relationships between religion (Islam), identity and emotion.
This has brought me to explore how these factors affect phenomena
such as faith, secularism, radicalism and gender relationships in
different social contexts. For a detailed list of my research, please
see my CV and publications.
