- I am a lecturer in International Education and Development in the Department of Education.
- I previously worked as a research fellow in the Consortium for Research on Educational Access Transitions and Equity.
- I have also studied and taught in the Departments of Geography and Anthropology at the University of Sussex.
- I am a member of the Centre for International Education, the Sussex Centre for Migration Research and the Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth.
I cm currently working on three projects:
- I am the Qualitative Theme Leader for research in the Migrating out of Poverty Research Consortium.
- An exploratory project on private secondary education in Malawi with Professor Keith Lewin.
- An evaluation of 'Speed Schools' in Ethiopia, a project aiming to reintegrate children who have dropped out of school into government schools through an accelerated learning programme with Dr Kwame Akyeampong and Dr Ricardo Sabates.
- My doctoral research was part of the AHRC funded 'Home and Away' project and focused on the experiences of children growing up Bangladeshi in London and their role in social change as they negotiate the reproduction of societies. The project was rated as 'oustanding' by an AHRC review.
- My research interests include development, education, childhoods, India and Bangladesh, Islam, migration, transnationalism, multiculturalism as well as research methods.
