My research is on epistemic injustice and cross-cultural perspectives on human rights and development, exploring how storytelling and leisurely, playful interaction can help activists reimagine justice. Since 2016 I have been working with artists, activists and academics from Bangladesh, Uganda and the UK doing research on art, activism and the political imagination.
I did my PhD at the Centre for Applied Human Rights at the University of York, and held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at the University of Oxford - in both roles, I supported programmes of peer-learning for human rights leaders and activists at risk.
I am currently Chair of the Electoral Reform Society (UK) and previously worked with ActionAid, Oxfam, UNDP and the European Commission.
