My work at LSBU involves supporting in the institutional commitment to decolonising the curriculum. In being able to eliminate racial awarding gaps and promote fair access & participation for all students, I work closely with LSBU's Access & Participation Plan working group and Centre for Research Informed Teaching, to lead on the development, implementation and, interventions aimed at decolonising LSBU.

I am a global south feminist decolonial scholar. I am currently working with LSBU as the first Decolonising Research Fellow. Alongside this, I am also pursuing my PhD at SOAS, University of London.

My PhD project is a culmination of my decade of work in the gender and development space in the Global South. Prior to joining LSBU, I worked as a Policy Specialist on Women's Economic Rights at Action Aid UK. I have also worked with Oxfam, Global Partnership for Education, Global Fight Inequality Alliance and with state Government's in India, National and Regional Women's Rights organisations and community based organisations in India.
