Professional interests

My particular areas of interest are working with children and adults particularly in relation to mental health and transistions.


Research interests

I have particular interest in issues around impacts of inequality and transistions. To this effect I have recently carried out two different research; one into ageing and transistions for 'new settlers' in UK and other into overseas students and their transistions into education systems in UK.

I regularly work with voluntary agencies that deal with these issues in housing, education and social sector.

Additional interests and activities

I am very interested in promotion of equality in social and education areas. I have recently worked with NGOs SARD and Save the Children in conjunction with University of Jamia in Delhi on a research conducted to explore application of inclusive programmes in primary schools in some of the deprived areas of Delhi.

From the outcome of the research carried out into the needs of 'overseas' students in EHS, I have recently aquired TIR funding to produce information and comprehensive guidance for such students.

Recent publications

I have recently completed a research report on Promoting Inclusive Education in Delhi.
