I come to the discipline of Geography through Migration Studies, with a PhD from the University of Sussex, UK. Prior to starting as a Lecturer in Geography at the Open University in May 2018, I held postdoctoral positions at the Open University in the UK (2016-2018), Nanyang Technological University in Singapore (2015-2016) and York University in Canada (2014-2015). I am the Postgraduate Convenor, and the Pathway lead for Geography for the Grand Union DTP. I am also an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology
My research interests focus on the interplay between gender, class, education and skilled mobility . This work has stretched across South Asia, Southeast Asia, North America and the UK/EU to examining the mobility of international students, and highly skilled migrants within academia, the IT sector and Finance.

I am currently part of the presentation team for the following modules:
