About me

I am Senior Lecturer in Public Health at the School of Health and Social Wellbeing, the University of the West of England, and Research Affiliate at the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship, the University of Bristol. I did my MSc and PhD in Sociology at the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies, the University of Bristol. I am Co-Editor for Health: Sage Journals (sagepub.com) and Review Editor for Frontiers in Sociology (Race and Ethincity).

In my doctoral dissertation, recently published as a monograph (Transnational Islam and the Integration of Turks in Great Britain, 2021, Palgrave Macmillan), I developed several avenues of theoretical and empirical inquiry, including the novel theoretical approach, 'integration as a three-way process and negotiation'. This offers original insights into how national citizenship models can be extended and renewed to cover cross-border mobility and is further explored in the peer-reviewed article, 'Integration, transnationalism, and transnational Islam' (2021, Identities).

My current research interests include race, ethnicity, migration, and health inequalities; wellbeing of racialized groups; and health and immigrant integration in the UK and beyond. My most recent publications include 'Governance of religious diversity in Western Europe' published in Ethnicities (2021); and 'Integration, transnationalism and transnational Islam' published in Identities (2021). My works have been published in different journals including, Ethnicities, Ethnic and Racial Studies, Identities, Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, Insight Turkey, Journal of Nordic Migration Studies, and Journal of Global Analysis
