Research interests

My doctoral research examines the material and intellectual contributions made by individuals of South Asian heritage to the British Museum from 1753 to the present day. This research seeks to broaden the understanding of how the Museum's collection was and continues to be formed and understood.

Through the examination of objects and collections donated or sold to the Museum by individuals of South Asian descent and associated archives, this research seeks to contextualise these contributions within the British Museum's wider collecting history to understand the relationship shared by these individuals with the Museum and the rationales behind their contributions.
