I am a Ph.D candidate (ABD) and an SSHRC Doctoral Fellow (2014-2019) at Harvard University studying Muslim intellectual history with a focus on Islamic theology, philosophy, and mysticism. My dissertation in progress focuses on how Muslims understand the nature and revelation of the Quran, with special attention to the concepts of scripture (kitab), revelatory inspiration (wahy), and hermeneutics in the Quran, classical Sunni exegesis (tafsir), classical Sunni kalam theology, early Shia thought, and Ismaili philosophy. I also research the theology and philosophy of Nasir-i Khusraw (d. ca. 1088).

My publications include articles in the Oxford Journal of Islamic Studies, Religion Compass, and The Oxford Handbook of Islamic Philosophy, forthcoming chapters in A Guide to Sufi Literature and Global-Critical Philosophy of Religion, and two articles in Sacred Web.
 
I hold a Master of Theological Studies degree (2014), specializing in Islamic theology & philosophy from Harvard Divinity School. I am also a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and articled with KPMG Canada. I completed Bachelor of Mathematics (BMath) and Master of Accounting degrees at the University of Waterloo (2008).
