I am a fully-funded AHRC Techne doctoral researcher completing a full-time PhD in the School of Humanities at Royal Holloway, University of London. My research interests include Caribbean studies, post-colonial scholarship, literary criticism, ecocriticism and womanism. Alongside my studies, I have served two full terms as the part-time BAME officer at the Students Union, working towards fair representation for all students by creating liberation campaigns and passing policies that directly affect BAME students. I now perform activism in an independent capacity as founder of the multi-award-winning organisation, Beyond Margins. Beyond Margins seeks to highlight the phenomenal achievements of Black and Asain students, staff and alumni across various stages of education, and those who are transitioning into industry, through social activism, training and development, school outreach and advertising/publicity initiatives. I, and my team, work closely with various universities and schools across the UK; external organisations (various industries) and charities. I am also the co-founder of Black in Arts and Humanities, a new global online network of Black scholars and practitioners/professionals in these fields, working alongside Dr Hannah Robbins and Dr Leighan Renaud.
