Non-stipendiary PhD Scholar
Centre of Islamic Studies (FAMES) PhD scholar
Imran is researching sociality in the mystical theology of 'Abd al-Ghanī al-Nābulusī (1641-1731). This explores the various types of influences and interactions which shaped this understudied Damascene scholar's religious and mystical viewpoint.
Before beginning his PhD, Imran worked as a Research Assistant at the University of St Andrews on an ERC Arabic poetry project for two years. As well as studying at a number of theological seminaries in Syria, Pakistan and Turkey, he also did an MA in Islamic Theology at Leiden University (2011) and a BA in International Relations at the University of Leeds (2007).
