I'm a London based Art Historian specialising in British imperialism. 

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

My upcoming book, 'The Art of a Corporation: The East India Company as Patron and Collector’, uses British painting and sculpture to examine the history and self-image of the East India Company, London’s oldest, longest surviving mutinational corporation.
