Current Research

I am currently researching glass production and trade in the early Islamic Persian Gulf. Glass production and trade in the early Islamic Persian Gulf has become a topic of interest for those seeking to identify primary glass production zones and the geological origins of glass raw materials. Thus far, however, research in the Near East has focused primarily on the origins of Egypt and Syria rather than on Iran and Iraq. Minimal research has been conducted on glass sources along "Spice Route" linking to the Middle East to southeast Asia. This project will be the first to investigate primary glass production zones and raw materials in the Persian Gulf.
