About me

Welcome to my website.

I am a British-Mauritian historian working on modern British history. I completed my PhD at Birkbeck College, University of London in 2023. My research was funded by the Bonnart Trust.


My work focuses on reappraising the history of immigration and ethnicity in post-war Britain and how it interacted with local and national government. This also entails wider political debates around multiculturalism. My work seeks to centre the afterlife of Empire in Modern British history. My broader research interests include post-colonialism, trans-nationalism, and intersections between race, class and gender. This has led me to write about black feminist groups in Britain, the South Asian diaspora, and mental health among Afro-Caribbean migrants in Britain. My writings to date have focused on the lived experiences of people of colour in Britain.

I have presented my work at conferences hosted by the University of Cambridge, University College London and Birkbeck. My research was made into a learning resource for Key Stage 3 pupils via a collaboration with the University of Cambridge. I have also presented my work to the the Civil Service, the Mile End Institute and community organisations. I was a runner-up in the Heywood Foundation Contest in 2021. My work has been published in academic journals as well as more mainstream publications.

Prior to my PhD at Birkbeck, I was an undergraduate at Christ Church, University of Oxford.
