Using the methods of design history, his doctoral research examined the material culture of Sri Lanka from 1800 to 1948, including the local and European-influenced built environment, domestic space and furnishings. Subsequently, he has published and lectured on the landscapes, built environment, crafts, interior design and material culture of nineteenth and twentieth century Sri Lanka as well as India. His present research investigates the negotiation of modernity and history in South Asia after 1948 through examination of objects, spaces and visual representations.
