I am a dynamic scholar, with more than 20 refereed articles published in various academic journals and four academic books. My research interests range widely, including postcolonial and global studies, critical theory, 19th and 20th century literatures, comparative literature, and ethics. I am keen on topics that touch on the history of ideas, geopolitics, and culture, especially when these issues are set within wider historical contexts. My aim as a scholar is to offer fresh, broader perspectives that help to deepen and reorient, in an accessible way, contemporary debates on culture, identity, ideology, and globalization.

I have published three monographs, and edited one volume:

Questioning Hybridity, Postcolonialism and Globalization (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011)

Rethinking Postcolonialism: Colonialist Discourse in Modern Literatures and the Legacy of Classical Writers (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008)

Joseph Conrad and the Reader: Questioning Modern Theories of Narrative and Readership (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009)
