I am assistant professor at New York University – Abu Dhabi. My interest in the Black Death is primarily Muslim and Christian intellectual and social responses to the plague. I have written a book comparing Muslim and Christian understandings of contagion in Iberia(http://muse.jhu.edu/books/9781421401058), as well as a short review article on religious responses to the plague
(http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1478-0542.2009.00634.x/abstract) and continue to work on the plague in the Muslim world.
