  • Research Fellow
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society
  • UCL Institute of Education

I completed my PhD in (Mathematics) Education from the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge in 2020. My PhD study explored how primary school teachers in state schools in Delhi, interpret and use reformed mathematics textbooks developed to make mathematics inclusive and accessible for all children. My current research project 'Primary Science Capital Project' explores ways of incorporating a social justice oriented teaching approach into primary science teaching. Previously, I completed my MPhil in Mathematics Education at University of Cambridge (2015) and MSc in Applicable Mathematics at London School of Economics (2009). I previously worked for Oxford University Press (Delhi) as a development editor; both developing and conceptualising mathematics textbooks. 


I am currently a member of the Early Career Research Network at the Collaborative Social Sciences Domain and an IOE Early Career Impact Fellow. I welcome invitations as a speaker, curator or writer.
