I am a PhD Candidate at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at UBC. I will be carrying out research on public transportation in urban India under the supervision of Professor Milind Kandlikar. Before moving to Canada, I worked for an NGO and a research organization in India. My research interests are urban studies, migration, informal economies and Indian history and politics. I hold an undergraduate degree in geography (University of Bristol) and a masters degree in development studies (University of Oxford).
