I’m an interdisciplinary academic researcher working on different social justice related issues. My academic research focuses on the politics and history of humanitarianism – mainly in India, but also global humanitarian action. I’ve written extensively about India’s failure to protect Rohingya refugees fleeing genocide in Myanmar.

I also write about the UK housing crisis after campaigning with my family for four years to save them from eviction and their 1950s tenanted housing estate from demolition. See: https://saveourhomesLS26.org.

In May 2022, I was awarded the Dawn Foster Memorial Essay Prize for my piece: “Fighting for Cardboard City: The drudgery of activism on the frontlines of the housing crisis”, published by Red Pepper Magazine, summer 2022.

On this site you’ll find details of my academic and policy publications, as well as my more recent work on housing insecurity.
