Research

Research Interests

My research has focused on the historical geographies of the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947. Sitting at the intersection of historical and anthropological work on partition and geographical work on the history of empire and colonialism, my research examines the attendant roles of geography and geographers in processes of decolonisation in the 20th century. My work encompasses the study of borders and boundaries; empire and colonialism; the history of cartography; and nationalism and anticolonialism.

Current Research

My current work examines the geographies of decolonisation with a particular focus on the ideologies and technologies associated with territorial partitions.
