Current professional role

Independent Scholar and writer.



Current projects

I have just published:

‘Migrant Architects of the NHS: South Asian doctors and the reinvention of British general practice (1940s-1980s)’ with Manchester University Press (2018); an exhibition around my work is ongoing at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London, making the 70th anniversary of the NHS (until December 2018)

I am currently finalising:

‘History, historians and the immigration debate: Going back to where we came from’ (co-edited with Eureka Henrich) – to be published by Palgrave in 2018.

Projects in Development

My core interest is in the impact of movement and mobility on contemporary Britain and I am planning to do more work in these areas.
