Biography

I am something of a disciplinary migrant. I completed an undergraduate degree in English and American Literature and an MA in Colonial and Postcolonial Literatures at the University of Warwick. I completed an AHRC-funded D. Phil. in English Literature from Wadham College, Oxford in 2009. My D. Phil. was titled “Imaginations: Representations of Nation under Postcolonial Occupation in East Pakistan/Bangladesh 1947-1971” and focused upon the development of Bangladeshi nationalist identity through cultural production in East Pakistan between 1947-1971.

From 2009-2011 I was employed as Research Associate on the ESRC Global Uncertainties programme funded project “Radical Distrust: A Cultural Analysis of the Emotional, Psychological and Linguistic Formations of Religious and Political Extremism” based in the School of English, University of Kent. From 2010-11 I was also Assistant Lecturer in the School of English at the University of Kent.

In 2011, I moved back to the University of Oxford and until 2014 I was Research Assistant in COMPAS and the History department at Oxford, working on the Leverhulme funded Oxford Diasporas project "Religious Faith, Space and Diasporic Communities in the East End, 1880-present", my own work specifically focusing on Muslim settlement in East London. 

I am currently Research Associate at UCL in the School of Geography, working on the AHRC Connected Communities project “Making Suburban Faith: Design, Material Culture and Popular Creativity in Suburban Faith Communities” in collaboration with Dr Claire Dwyer, UCL, and Dr David Gilbert, Royal Holloway.
