I am a graduate of Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies from Liverpool. I am currently researching Arab diaspora identity in the Liverpool-Yemeni community and their relationship with Yemen, Liverpool, Islam and the wider Muslim community. The thesis addresses more broadly questions of ethnicity, diasporic consciousness and the global ummah. Other research interests include Arabic dialectology, South Arabian languages, Medieval Arabic poetry and Critical Realist approaches to ethnography.
Article forthcoming in the British Yemeni Society Journal (2019).
