Welcome to my website!
My research explores the intersection between environmental governance, rural development, and democratic politics in rural India.
In August I will be joining the Department of Urban and Rural Development at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala. Presently, I am an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Social Inquiry at La Trobe University and a New Generation Network (NGN) Fellow at the Australia India Institute based at the University of Melbourne.
Previously, I was a Research Fellow in Public Policy at the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, where I worked with the Revitalizing Rainfed Agricultural Network (RRA). During that time, I was also been involved in the Sentinel Landscapes research project, a global multi-collaborator effort led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).
I completed my PhD in the Department of Geography and Geographic Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in December 2014.
