Bio: I am a qualitative researcher interested in understanding changes in land use and gender relationships resulting from development discourses in India. My dissertation aims at exploring the relationship between broader structural forces like neoliberalism, capitalism, colonialism, and rural women’s connection with their land and biophysical environment in the Northern Himalayan region of India. In addition to these academic pursuits, I have worked at the grassroots level on issues concerning rural development and sustainability in India.
