Projects per year
My main research interests are in gender, the family, and migration, particularly in the field of cross-border marriages. My most recent book, Marriage Migration and Integration, based on an ESRC funded project of the same name, was published by Palgrave in 2020. My ethnographic monograph 'Transnational Pakistani Connections: Marrying "Back Home"', and edited collection 'Transnational Marriage' are both published by Routledge. I co-edited a Special Issue of Men and Masculinities (with Helena Wray, Middlesex) on the neglect of migrant masculinities in migration law and scholarship, titled 'The Invisible (Migrant) Man'. I have published articles in journals including Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Ethnic and Racial Studies, and Global Networks.The report 'Marriage-related migration to the UK' (International Migration Review 2012) also appeared as a Home Office occassional research paper (No. 94). I founded and convene a research network on ‘Marriage and Migration’. My broader interests include South Asia and its diasporas, ethnicity, transnationalism and integration. I have also worked on Scottish graduate migration and retention (with Ross Bond & Sue Grundy, Edinburgh). Other projects on marriage-related migration are under development.
Before joining the University of Bristol in 2009, I was a lecturer at the University of Oxford (ISCA and COMPAS) where I convened the Migration Studies MPhil. Prior to that, I held a temporary lectureship and an ESRC postoctoral fellowship at the Unversity of Edinburgh, from where I also received my PhD in 2003.
I teach both undergraduate and postgraduate units:
Social Identities and Divisions (core first year)
Gender and Migration (final year specialist unit)
Gender, Families and Migration (Masters)
Narrating the Self (Masters)
I currently supervise a range of PhD students, and welcome new students in any of my research interests.
