Hi there! I’m Zeena,

I'm a Politics PhD Researcher in the Centre for British Politics at the University of Hull, looking into British Indian voting behaviour. Within politics, my interest rests heavily on British Indians in England, with my BA dissertation looking at British Hindu voting behaviour in the Leicester East constituency and my Masters dissertation looking into whether British Indian is a redundant term - focusing on Indians in England. 

I warmly invite you to take a look on my website and feel free to contact me if you have any questions, via the Contact Me form at the bottom of my page or on X - @ZMistryResearch.

Personal Profile and About my Research

Hard work, determination and resilience are key skills I've developed over the years, and this is what has helped me to get to where I am - from completing my Bachelors and Masters degrees during the Coronavirus pandemic to pursuing opportunities to grow as an individual.

I set up my blog in the summer of 2020, to enable me to share my ideas and interests with you, the reader, and I hope you will enjoy it. My interests compliment the fact that politics is a broad subject, ranging from the workings of British politics, to Voting Behaviour and the ethics of Artificial Intelligence.

My pieces have been published mostly on Wolves of Westminster and the notable non-profit publication The Mallard - both online and in print.

About My Research

In September 2022 I begun my PhD journey in the Centre for British Politics at the University of Hull. My research is gaining a in depth understanding of British Indian voting behaviour, with the focus being Indians who live in England.

I am conducting this research as it builds on my Bachelors dissertation – which you can find under Academic Work. There are some trends I’ve noticed an increase in conversations on voting behaviour since the 2016 referendum on the UKs membership of the European Union in the media, in academia there’s been too much of a generalisation of the use and understanding of the term ‘ethnic minority’ in discussions on voting behaviour, and finally a change in attitudes of the political parties towards ethnic minority (I use this term very loosely) in attracting their votes.

To conduct the research, I am taking a mixed methods approach using online questionnaires and semi-structured elite interviews.
