Welcome to my website. My research is guided by having a thoughtful understanding of contemporary issues influencing educational leadership and the unique role religion plays in education. My main area of research is Islamic schooling, education in contexts of conflict, and school leadership. I focus on intercultural understanding, which emphasizes the importance of learning and valuing one’s own culture and that of others; understanding that culture and language are changing; and the importance of schools teaching students the necessary skills to be responsible local and global citizens working cooperatively with others in an increasingly interconnected and diversifying world. I welcome you to take a look at the work that am passionate about and to join me in spreading kindness and understanding.
