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.
