Her research interests lie primarily in global modernism, twentieth century literatures, transnationalism, poetry, and world literature. Her monograph Modern Writers, Transnational Literatures: Rabindranath Tagore and W. B. Yeats has been published by Clemson University Press in 2021. It offers a fresh critical, comparative perspective on the work of Rabindranath Tagore and W. B. Yeats from the beginning of the twentieth century, when their international influences take centre stage and their writings become increasingly significant to what is now understood as global modernism. This monograph has been included in Liverpool University Press’ Irish Studies Online digital collection, which was launched in September 2021. Read the reviews Here and Here.

She has published on the writings, archives, and sculpture of the British sculptor Henry Moore as part of avant-garde global modernism and the use of archives as part of poetic pedagogy. She is working on several book chapters and articles on fantastical representations of the South Asian city, South Asian poetry, and later modernist poetry of India.

She is an Associate Fellow of Advance HE (Higher Education Academy). In 2022 and 2023, she received commendations for outstanding teaching at FLAME.
