Anders academic interest areas are mainly current Muslim debates on Islam and music, with a focus on popular culture and African-American Islam. He has done field work among Muslim hip-hop youth in Istanbul, and among the Nation of Gods and Earths in New York. He has taught several courses in Middle Eastern Studies, Human Rights Studies, Islamology and European Studies.

In 2006 he received Stora forskningsstipendiet at the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul and in 2010 he received the Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window staff scholarship for Yemen.
