Biography

My research area is Middle Eastern history in the Middle Period (c. 1100-1500). In my work I focus in particular on the history of Islamic political thought, especially under the Mamluks, Ayyubids, and Seljuks. I am interested in the ideal of ‘the rule of law’ as expressed in Islamic advice literature but also in the wider Eastern-Mediterranean political tradition. My other research interests include the ‘Crusader’ period (for instance the depiction of Frankish kings such as Louis IX and Frederic II in Islamicate historiography) and professional mobility in the pre-modern Islamic world.
