Research interests / activities:

I am part of the team of the ‘Animals And Urban Planning: Indian Cities As Zoöpolises’ research project led by Dr. Yamini Narayanan from Deakin University, and Prof. Jennifer Wolch from the University of California Berkeley. The research is funded by the Australian Research Council Discovery Project.

My PhD will offer an Australian perspective to the larger project, as I will be conducting a multispecies ethnography on farmed animals’ lives in microsanctuaries, here in Melbourne. With this work I aim to highlight the political work that these microsanctuaries perform.
