Research

My research concerns gender and sexual diversity, masculinities and transgender studies, race/ethnic relations, bodies, nationalsim, epsitemology and de/post-colonial studies. I completed a PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Hull in 2014. I was also a postdoctoral Fellow (2013-2017) in the ERC-funded globalsport Project at the University of Amsterdam. I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Bangladesh, Trinidad and Guyana. I am currently working on my book manuscript tentatively titled "Beyond emasculation: Pleasure and power in the making of the hijra in Bangladesh". 

Teaching

I currently teach "Political and economic anthropology".
