Research Interests

My doctoral research is exploring the interactions of the cultural-religious, the political-economic and the ecological dimensions of Godavari River in the city of Nashik in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. Broadly, investigating how the multiple perspectives of a natural resources overlap, contradict, challenge and support each other, thus shaping the urban landscape, producing socio-spatial inequalities and ecological challenges in cities.
