Thesis title
Gender parity in inheritance law in the United Arab Emirates


After retiring from a long career in the Oil and Gas Industry, as well as a stint in Financial Services, I have finally decided on pursuing a life long ambition of completing a PhD at SOAS. My particular interest is in Islamic Law, and particularly inheritance law. My dissertation challenges the possibility of gender parity in inheritance law using Sharia compliant methods.

Research interests

  • Islamic Law
  • History of the Arabian Gulf region
