Her dissertation, titled “The Ties that Bind, Child Custody in Andalusi Mālikism, 3rd/9th-6th-12th c.” studies the evolution of child custody law within one Muslim school of law (Maliki) in al-Andalus between the ninth and the twelfth century. This work critically examines notions of womanhood, motherhood, fatherhood, step-fatherhood and childhood in Islamic jurisprudence.
