About me

Research topic: The experience of Sikhs in contemporary Britain

I have a BSc in Economics and MSc’s in Anthropology. I am currently writing up my thesis which focuses on Sikhs and in particular their position in Britain. My PhD research consisted of twelve months of ethnographic fieldwork with Sikhs in the West Midlands. I utilised various research methods such as interviews and the collation of life histories under the umbrella strategy of ‘participant observation.’

I volunteer for a number of organisations including the Sikh Education Council (SEC) where I am a Senior Research Fellow. Here I help to produce contributions to the quarterly newsletter and also teach and develop a 3-year Sikh Studies course. I am a member of LSE’s Religion Scholars Network. I am also a PhD tutor for the Brilliant Club where I have used my expertise to develop a course suitable for KS3 and KS4 pupils.

Teaching experience: GTA for AN100

Supervisors: Prof. Laura Bear & Dr Fenella Cannell
