Postdoctoral Research Officer
I trained as a social anthropologist at Edinburgh, UCL and the LSE, and joined the Contemporary South Asian Studies Programme in the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies in Oxford in 2008. My research is based in rural Andhra Pradesh, Southeast India and is primarily concerned with Dalits (earlier known as ‘Untouchables’), especially Dalit women. My work looks at different forms of inequality (caste, class and gender), education, identity, affirmative action and labour relations.
Admin - Centre Administrator
Centre Administrator for both CSASP (the Contemporary South Asia Studies Programme) and MES (Middle East Studies)
Hello, I'm the administrator of the above two programmes so, if you've got any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I formerly worked at the Latin American Centre (also part of SIAS) and, before that, at The Royal Academy of Music in London as well as the Oxford School of Drama. Deep in the mists of time I was an EFL teacher in Poland and Jordan, working for various institutions including the British Council.
