Daf received his MA in Comparative Literature from Queen Mary, University of London in 2016. His work specialised in postcolonial literature, Indian literature, Welsh literature, and the Frankfurt school of critical theory. His areas of interest include popular culture and national identities.
When away from his laptop, Daf frequents local music venues and record shops, reads voraciously, and plays guitar. To his grandparents’ joy, he once performed with his band on Welsh television.
