I am working on my doctoral project titled “Rethinking Feminist Engagements with Anti-Sexual Harassment Institutions: A Study of University Spaces in India.” My broader areas of interest lie in the fields of socio-legal studies, feminist legal theory, legal ethnography, and political theory. My doctoral research is fully funded by the Felix Trust, India.

Before starting my PhD at SOAS, I was in Jadavpur university, Kolkata, for a year on the UGC Junior Research Fellowship and worked as a Research Assistant in a National Commission of Women funded project on the assessment of Prevention of Domestic Violence Act (2005), in West Bengal.

Presently, I am also working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the School of Law, SOAS, for the module titled “Legal Systems of Asia and Africa”.
