About Me

I am an ethnographer, teacher, writer, and multimodal creator. I am Assistant Professor of International Studies at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I recently defended my PhD dissertation in Anthropology and South Asia Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. I combine ethnographic, archival, spatial, and quantitative methods to research urban environments, governance, and politics in cities of the Global South (primarily in India). I have conducted both individual and collaborative research on a range of topics such as housing rights, land markets, sanitation infrastructure, renewable energy, and education, among others. My previous affiliations include Hyderabad Urban Lab and Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai.
