Research Interests

My research is motivated by a deep seated interest in Class Politics, Planetary Urbanisation, and Displacement and Exclusion. I explore these themes through research in South Asia, focusing primarily on the city of Chennai in South India. My work falls into three broad areas of inquiry: (i) Political Practices of the New Indian Middle Class, (ii) Environmental Amenities and the Entrepreneurial City and (iii) Displacement, 'Eco-Gentrification', and the Production of Environmental Vulnerability.
