Research

research overview

  • At the nexus of urban geography and human-environment relations, my research primarily examines the connections between urban waterscapes and socio-political processes in cities of the global South. In particular, I examine water and its infrastructures as a lens for analyzing social and material relations in cities as well as differing regimes and institutions of everyday urban governance. My prior research has predominately focused on Indian cities, contributing to theorizations of urban and feminist political ecologies, Southern and comparative urbanism, and “actually existing” modalities of urban water governance in postcolonial cities.  Recent work also includes a collaborative intra-urban comparison of precarious infrastructures in the cities of Mumbai, Delhi and Cape Town as well as a project examining infrastructural violence and the everyday politics of water disruption in India’s capital city, Delhi.
