I received my PhD in History from Queen's University in 2019. Prior to joining Laurier, I was an award-winning instructor who taught global migration history and the history of slavery in North America at Queen’s University. My research examines the relationship between global South Asian diaspora and British imperialism. I held research fellowships at the Weatherhead Initiative on Global History at Harvard University, the Centre for Indian Studies in Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, and at Jindal Global Law School in India.
