I came to Manchester in September 2019 from Lancaster University, where I was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellow. My research focuses on multispecies interactions in postcolonial literature, with a special concentration in contemporary South Asia. My book manuscript, Multispecies Modernity: Disorderly Life in Postcolonial Literature (under contract with Wilfrid Laurier University Press), locates techniques of identity formation in relationships between animals and humans in Indian writing from the late colonial period to the present day.
