My research interests generally cover the social dynamics of conversion between Christianity and Islam from the 8th through the 10th centuries. Particularly people who vacillated between Christianity and Islam, Muslim participation in Christian rituals and vice versa, and social situations which would have engendered people identifying with both religions such as: Christian wives of Muslim husbands, children of those unions, Christian mawālī of Muslims, and Christian slaves of Muslims.
