About me

He is responsible for commissioning and creating content for the blog and the Centre’s other digital platforms, along with developing and delivering the Centre’s events through the year. He is also the principal point of contact for the Centre’s events and communication streams, and works closely with LSE students, external partners and stakeholders to deliver the Centre’s events through the year.

As Editor of the ‘South Asia @ LSE’ blog, Christopher is responsible for working closely with contributors to create clear and accessible content on the latest academic research from scholars based in the UK and in South Asia. He also schedules weekly book reviews, long reads and interviews with researchers, academics, photographers and journalists on a wide variety of issues affecting the region.

Prior to taking up his current position at LSE, Christopher was Research and Communications Assistant for Rushanara Ali MP from 2016-18, assisting her especially in her role as Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Democracy in Burma (Myanmar), and the UK's Trade Envoy to Bangladesh. Earlier, from 2013-16 Christopher lived in Barcelona where he worked as an Editor for Business Report and a freelance journalist. He has published articles on politics, culture and activism in The Guardian, New Statesman and Independent, and has recently completed a book on populism and social movements based on this journalism, to be published by Zed Books in 2019.
