About

I am a historian and literary critic of South Asian people in Britain and Europe. Spanning the period from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, I research and write about race, resistance, and revolution, focusing particularly on Indian anticolonialism, nationalism, and anarchism, as well as the contemporary legacies of colonialism, racism, riots, and human rights.

I am currently an Affiliated Research Fellow at the Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO), Berlin, Germany.
