I have an M.Sc. and M.Phil. in International Relations from the Quaid-i-Azam University of Islamabad, Pakistan, and an MA in Peace and Development Studies from the University of Jaume I of Castellon, Spain. My Ph.D. from the Institute for Cross-cultural and Regional Studies (ToRS), at University of Copenhagen, Denmark explored religious diversity and Muslim identity in Pakistan within the context of local religious organizations (Sufi shrines).
