Tarek is a cultural and critical clinical psychologist, and currently a Lecturer in Psychology at Middlesex University.

His research has explored the racialisation of Muslims as a result of statutory counter-terrorism policies in mental health. I have written on Western Muslim identities; Islamophobia; the securitisation and racism of mental health; and how Muslims are increasingly marginalised through colour-blind policies which don’t target them explicitly. I teach on the impact of culture, religion, globalisation and security policies on mental health interventions.
