Expertise summary

The history of colonisation in South Asia through the lens of utopia, with a specific goal of highlighting marginalised and silenced anti-colonial voices. I do this specifically by exploring the impact on religion, culture, gender and sexuality, and language.

Policy credentials

I continue to work as research expert on histories of criminalising homosexuality with the Kaleidoscope Trust and Commonwealth Equality Network.

Media credentials

I have appeared on Al Jazeera and Sky News as a research expert on the Commonwealth, and on BBC Nottingham to speak about the Rohingya refugee crisis.
