Research

My doctoral studies are on Islamic-Arabic philosophy, philosophical theology, and the studies of Islamic and Persian manuscripts.

My PhD dissertation is on the topic of divine knowledge and the Avicennan theory of representation in Islamic-Arabic metaphysics, where I focus on the writings of Mullā Shamsā Gīlānī (d. 1631), supervised by Prof. Dr. F. A. Haas and Dr. A. Bdaiwi.

In conjunction with my doctoral studies I have also prepared critical editions of philosophical writings on metaphysics and the philosophy of cosmology by looking at the unpublished works of Mullā Muḥsin Fayd Kāshānī and Mullā Shamsā Giīlānī. I also have worked with manuscripts in qur’anic studies especially in the field of exegesis.
