I am a practitioner and researcher at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London. Currently funded by the British Academy, I am working with women migrant domestic workers in the UK and Lebanon, making a collection of 'soundwalks' that aim to put migrant workers in the driving seat of self-representation, and to provide a fresh and immersive platform for listeners to connect to migrant worker stories and experiences. These range from activism, to home-making, to stories of escape from employment conditions amounting to modern slavery, and can be found at homemakersounds.org. I am a BBC New Generation Thinker, and my work has appeared on Radio 3 and for the Guardian, as well as in peer-reviewed academic journals. I hold a joint PhD from King's College London and the National University of Singapore, and have been conducting research in the Middle East and Southeast Asia since 2013.
