- About Me
I am a historian of Modern South Asia based at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, where I am a postdoctoral researcher. I have a wide interest in the social and cultural history of India in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with a particular focus on the princely states, gender, and visual culture.
I have a PhD in History from the University of Cambridge, with a dissertation on the global links of the Indian princely state of Baroda in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
After my PhD, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi (with a fellowship awarded by the M. S. Merian – R. Tagore International Centre of Advanced Studies) and at UPF (through the Government of Spain’s Juan de la Cierva program). I have also held a visiting fellowship at Brown University’s Department of History, awarded by the Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad.
At UPF’s Department of Humanities, I serve as co-convener of the seminar of the Research Group on Empires, Metropoles and Extra-European Societies (GRIMSE) and as the dissertation coordinator in the BA in Global Studies. My teaching includes undergraduate courses on modern global history, as well as graduate courses on the history of Asian diasporas and the role of race and gender in colonial wars.
