  • UCL Institute of Education

I was employed by SSRU between 2009-2012, where I worked on the CASCADE study which involved recruitment, data collection and analysis of young people with Type 1 diabetes. Research took place in various UK hospital clinics. I re-joined in December 2014 working for the Eppi Centre, SSRU. In my current post as a research associate I work on systematic reviews which mainly focus on health issues.

My thesis title 'Life Journeys: Narratives of Hindu Mothers & Daughters in British Homes' (2004) explored themes around: Migration, home identity and belonging. I was particularly interested in how ideas of and connections to home changed from childhood to growing old.
