I am a historian of Modern South Asia based at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona, where I am a Juan de la Cierva-Incorporación Postdoctoral Fellow. My research on nineteenth and twentieth-century India explores several often overlapping topics: the princely states, the political and cultural exchanges between the Indian subcontinent and Europe, gender and masculinity, and visual culture.
I hold a PhD in History from the University of Cambridge. After my PhD, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS), Delhi (with an ICAS:MP fellowship, awarded by the M. S. Merian – R. Tagore International Centre of Advanced Studies) and at UPF (with a Juan de la Cierva-Formación Fellowship by the Government of Spain). At UPF, I am a member of the Department of Humanities and the Jaume Vicens i Vives Institute of History (IHJVV).
