My research interest is primarily in religiosity and its effects on mental health and subjective well-being in the Muslim population. More specifically, I research the effects of organizational religious involvement (e.g. service attendance) and non-organizational religious involvement (e.g. praying individually) on stress, self-esteem, life satisfaction, distress, depressive symptoms, and other variables related to well-being and mental health. Moreover, my research examines the effects of mosque-based emotional support on mental health and subjective well-being. Additionally, my research looks at the stress-buffering effects of religiosity, and the use of religious coping.
