I am a political sociologist and the current leader of the Law and Religion stream within the Institute for Religion, Politics and Society. My work examines the intersection of law and religion, political Islam, Sharia, multiculturalism, citizenship and xenophobia. I also work on broader topics related to cities, deindustrialisation and Australian political parties.

Researching at the intersection of religion and politics, Naser's interests lie in the study of Islamic political theology, secularism, state-religion-society relations, and Middle East and Iranian politics. By mapping competing discourses and practices in the Muslim world, his current research project involves conceptualising the possibility not only of the co-existence of religious and secularity but also the need to recognise the religious roots of an emerging model of secularity in the Muslim world. Conceptualising the notion of electoral Theocracy, Naser is also working on authoritarian resilience in Middle East. This project intends to explore the contribution of repeated elections to the durability of authoritarianism.
Naser holds a Ph.D. (University of Sydney, 2012) and an M.A. in Political Science (Shahid Beheshti University, Iran 2001). He has also worked as editor-in-chief of the foreign policy service at the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA), communication officer with the UNDP and head of the Information Resource Centre (IRC), UNICEF office in Tehran.
Naser has authored three books including Religious secularity: a theological challenge to the Islamic state (Oxford University Press, 2015), Caspian sea: legal regime, neighbouring countries and US policies (Farhang-e Gofteman, 2005) and A study of people's divergence from ruling system (Farhang-e Gofteman, 2002). His articles have been published in internationally refereed journals such as Third World Quarterly, Democratization, Philosophy and Social Criticism, Commonwealth & Comparative Politics, Contemporary Politics, and Discourse.
