Research interests

My research interests surround nationalism, migration, race and ethnicity, ethnic politics and identity, and popular culture, and my research centralises South Asia in attempt to further shed light upon, and understand, these complex people, histories, cultures and politics. My PhD research examines inter-generational Bengali cultural identity, migration and nationalism in Britain.

I have previously conducted extended research on racialised masculinity and Western media representation, and heritage language and belonging, and have examined the relationship between Bollywood and neo-imperialism in the marginalisation of indigenous ethnic groups in Northeastern India. Alongside my academic work, I have also written short articles and blogs for organisations and platforms on topics such as migration and national identity, and the impact of gender upon cooking and culinary skill.
