Research Interests

At Exeter, my research will mainly be focused on Bahraini court records from the first half of the 20th century, which I will be using to analyse the impact the cadastral survey had on land rights in the country.  In addition to this, I am revisiting the British-led reforms of the 1920s, and looking at power dynamics in Bahrain post-Independence, with particular attention paid to the changing nature of foreign influence.  I will also be using big data techniques to examine strategies of sectarian hate speech on social media in the Gulf region.
