Adriaan's research focuses on contemporary Christianity, in particular Pentecostalism, in Africa, specifically in relation to issues of gender, sexuality and public life.
- His PhD research was on transformations of masculinity in African Christian contexts, with a focus on Zambia, and was published in several journal articles as well as the monograph Transforming Masculinities in African Christianity: Gender Controversies in Times of AIDS (Ashgate 2013).
