Dissertation Title
2017-2019 Postdoctoral Fellow in Islam in America
Being at Stanford gave me the time and the opportunity to build new classes on Islam in America, make connections with like-minded scholars doing incredible work, and make substantial progress on my manuscript.  One of the highlights of my time at Stanford was curating the “Islam in America” series, organized by the Abbasi program with generous support from the Religious Studies department.  As part of that series, I got to interview Kareem Abdul-Jabbar about Islam and basketball on stage in front of 1,000 people.  To say it was amazing is an understatement!  After finishing my postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford, I joined the Department of History at the University of Southern California as an Assistant Professor of U.S. History.
