More specifically, he explores the interfaces between class, consumption, market relations, religion and the state in a globalized world.

He is the author of Proper Islamic Consumption: Shopping among the Malays in Modern Malaysia (NIAS Press 2008), The Halal Frontier: Muslim Consumers in a Globalized Market (Palgrave Macmillan 2011), Islam, Standards, and Technoscience: In Global Halal Zones (Routledge 2015), Halal Matters: Islam, Politics and Markets in Global Perspective (Routledge 2015), Religion, Regulation, Consumption: Globalising Kosher and Halal Markets (Manchester University Press 2018), Kosher and Halal Business Compliance (Routledge 2018), Muslim Piety as Economy: Markets, Meaning and Morality in Southeast Asia (Routledge 2019) as well as articles in journals and edited volumes. He is Editor of the Routledge book series Studies in Material Religion and Spirituality and on the Editorial Boards of British Food Journal, International Journal of Asia Pacific Studies as well as Research in Globalization. Currently, he works on a research project that explores the relationship between vegetarian and non-vegetarian (food) markets in India.
