    Personal Statement

    I am a human geographer whose work examines the legacies of colonialism in the past and the present. My work has explored how South Indian anticolonial activists imagined what the world after colonialism would look like - explored in detail in my book "Geographies of Anticolonialism" (Wiley, 2019) which was published in the Royal Geographical Society (with Institute of British Geographers) Book Series.

    I also conduct participatory research in Liverpool with communities and volunteers, encouraging public education about the legacies of colonialism which are still visible in the 21st Century. Working alongside Writing on the Wall, a creative charity based in the city, this has led to videos, mapping exercises, and walking tours, as well as the publication of "Ten Years on the Parish" (LUP, 2017), the autobiography of the Liverpool-based radical playwright and activist George Garrett, which featured on the BBC's One Show in 2019.

    In Summer 2013, I was a BASAS/British Academy Visiting Fellow at the Ecole Francais d'Extreme Orient in Pondicherry, India.
