Dr Hasan al-Khoee was awarded his PhD (2021) from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London), where he focussed on early Arabic historiography and the symbolic and political communicative cultures of the early Muslim caliphates (1st-2nd/7th–8th centuries). He completed his earlier BA (Hons) in History and MA in African and Asian History degrees at SOAS, and is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Dr al-Khoee is currently a Research Associate at the IIS, having joined the Institute in 2007, where his work specialises in Fatimid history, historiography and the development of notions of authority in Islam between the 1st-4th/7th-10th centuries. He continues as a module leader lecturing on the IIS’s graduate programmes on early Muslim history and Shiʿism.
