I was born in the U.K. and completed a B.Sc. in Environmental Science at Queen Mary, University of London. In 2002 I completed my M.A. in Social Anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) under the guidance of JDY Peel with a focus on diasporic Yoruba religious practices. I am interested in the Chinese of Cuba who arrived there as indentured workers following the abolition of slavery. I am particulary interested in their interplay with African derived religious traditions, namely La Regla de Ocha (Santeria), Palo, and Abakwa.
