Writing about travel, culture, society, education and well-being.
I have written books for major international publishers including Knopf, Scholastic, Icon books, Granta, Hachette and Bloomsbury. I contributed to Dorling Kindersley's globally bestselling "The Philosophy Book". Also words for the BBC, Aeon magazine etc. My interests range from philosophy (in which I have a PhD) and anthropology (my MA), to travel, culture, education and well-being.
Previously, I was Associate Professor at De Montfort University, Visiting Professor at the Parami Institute Yangon and Visiting Associate Professor at Sichuan University. I am particularly interested in projects that cross between cultures.
I am currently freelance and based in Sofia, Bulgaria, where I co-direct a project exploring the intersections of writing, creativity and social justice. My next book is "Hello Stranger: Stories of Connection in a Divided World" (forthcoming 2020, Granta UK).
