I am based at the University of Leeds where I am employed as an Associate Professor in the School of Philosophy, Religion and the History of Science (PRHS). My research focuses on the religious and cultural lives of South Asians in Britain, with a particular focus on ‘Religious and Cultural transmission’.
Prior to my current post I was a University Academic Fellow and Research and Impact Fellow as part of Arts Engaged at Leeds, a team dedicated to helping academics work towards understanding how their research could make a difference.
I completed my PhD (recognised for research excellence) in 2012 in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Leeds where my research was supervised by Prof. Kim Knott and Dr. Sean McLoughlin. My PhD was funded through a Collaborative Studentship as part of the AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society programme in conjunction with the British Educational and Cultural Association of Sikhs (BECAS), an organisation formed 25 years ago to oversee the educational interests of Sikh children and young people.
