I am an Art Historian specialising in the art and architecture of India. Based in London, my current research focuses on the British Colonial Period. 

In 1999 I was awarded my PhD in Art and Archaeology from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. I then worked for 14 years at the British Library as Curator of Visual Arts, specialising in the India Office Collections. My PhD thesis was published in 2003, under the title, ‘The Courts of Pre-Colonial South India’In 2010 I published my second book, on the British Library’s Mackenzie Collection.

I have published and lectured on a range of topics, such as the historiography of art, illustrated South Asian manuscripts and the architecture of India.
