Feyzi has degrees in Philosophy and Social Policy, and completed her PhD in Development Studies at SOAS, where she conducted research on the relationship between NGOs and the left parties in Nepal. She has taught at UCL in Geography and at Goldsmiths in Media, Communications and Cultural Studies. Her research interests include NGOs and social movements, alternatives to neoliberalism and imperialism, labour and migration, and politics and development in Nepal and South Asia. She is on the executive committee of the Britain-Nepal Academic Council and the editorial board of Capital & Class.
Feyzi has conducted research in Nepal, India and Bangladesh. Her research has focused on theorising a critical approach to NGOs under neoliberalism, labour conditions of the working poor, the connections between geopolitics and development in Nepal and South Asia, the rise and decline of the Nepali Maoists and, on a global level, popular protest and social movement organising. Currently she is engaged in the project 'Migration, Precarity and Agency: Women Construction Workers in Nepal' funded by LIDC.
