I am an historian of South Asia, researching labour, technology, and social change within South Asian Muslim communities. My forthcoming first book is titled Pious Labour: Islam, artisanship, and technology in colonial India. It analyzes colonial-era social, economic, and technological change in north India through the perspectives of Muslim workers and artisan labourers.
