My research expertise is in the field of the religious, social, and intellectual history of the pre-modern Arabic- and Persian-speaking Muslim Middle East. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the interrelations between religion, culture, and society. 

I am interested in medieval Muslim constructions of heresy and orthodoxy, sectarianism, and the politics of religious polemics. I have published on early Shiism, Muslim polemics, and one of my forthcoming projects is a book on medieval Muslim heresiology. 

 Finally, I am interested in the history of the discipline of Religious Studies in general, and Islamic Studies in particular, as practiced in Euro-American academia in the last two centuries.
