In my current research, I ask the question ‘how can education help us deal with the Anthropocene’? I argue that environmental activism can be seen as a form of education, one that has a lot to offer to formal education systems around the globe. My broader research interests include international development, activism, ethnographic film, cinematic representations of progress, the history of South Asia and South Africa.

I am the author of the monograph Visions of Development (New York: Oxford University Press, 2016) and the upcoming book 'Educating for the Anthropocene’ as well as a number of articles and studies that can be accessed through here.
