My areas of research are in Islamic Studies, particularly in classical Islamic law (fiqh) and ethics and the theological history of Christian-Muslim relations. I welcome Masters or Phd applications from students in both disciplines.

Throughout my university career, I have always been involved in public life and worked with the media. Aside from my broadcasting,  I chair the BBC’s Scottish Religious Advisory Committee and am a member of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics.
