As a fellow for the Center of Culture, Society and Religion (CCSR) at Princeton, he has organised events, authored essays, and helped produce videos that make academic works relevant to a broader audience. Throughout his academic career, Hasan has engaged with various campus groups, for instance, conducting a session with the feminist society at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) on Muslim masculinity, and another session with the religious society at LUMS on interrogating selfhood in popular Hollywood movies.

In his free time, Hasan loves travelling with his wife and daughter to see parks, share Urdu and Persian poetry, and build community over homemade food.
