Prior to joining the faculty at Syracuse University, he worked in the Department of Geography at the University of Vermont.

His research has been supported by a number of institutions, including the American Research Institute in Turkey, the Institute of Turkish Studies, and the Fulbright-IIE. He is currently in the process of preparing a book manuscript tentatively titled Placing Islam in Istanbul: Urban Life, Politics, and the Changing Landscapes of Belief.
