Lecturer in Political Theory, University of Leicester

I joined the School of History, Politics and International Relations as a Lecturer in Political Theory in May 2022. Before this, I was a Dahlem Postdoctoral Fellow at the Free University of Berlin and worked as a historian of political thought at the Universities of Huddersfield and Edinburgh. At Leicester, I'm also the Admissions Tutor for Politics & International Relations.

My major research to date has focussed on Indian liberalism with my first book, Uncivil Liberalism: Labour, Capital and Commercial Society in Dadabhai Naoroji's Political Thought (2022) exploring the contribution of Indian liberalism to global ideas of sociality and political economy. I have since worked on article-length pieces on the political thought of the founder of Hindu nationalism, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. More recently, my second book-length project has turned to political emotion and republicanism in the political theory of the Global South with a particular focus on humiliation as a form of political domination.
