Contact details

My interest in Indonesian politics and Islam was awakened as an undergraduate at Monash University and they have remained the focus of my academic and professional activity since then. My PhD thesis was a study of the traditionalist Muslim party, Nahdlatul Ulama. More recently, I have examined terrorism, transnational Islamist movements and religious commodification in Indonesia, as well as broader trends in contemporary Islamic politics in Southeast Asia.
