Senior Language Tutor, University Language Centre, University of Manchester

My PhD in sociolinguistics, from Lancaster University, investigated narratives of second-generation South Asian Britons, and will be published as a monograph with Lexington Press in 2019.

I teach in the University Language Centre, part of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. I teach mainly Academic Writing and English for Academic Purposes, but I also lead a module, Language and Identity in Mulitcultural Spaces, on the MA in Intercultural Communication.

I have a Master's in Education from the Open University, and a BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Wales.

My novel The Bureau of Second Chances (Polygon Birlinn) won the Writers' Guild Award for Best First Novel (2017), and my novel The Inheritance (Polygon Birlinn) was published in 2018.
