I have an Msc in Environmental Anthropology from the University of Kent, Canterbury and a Bsc in Life Science from St Xaviers College Autonomous, Mumbai. My interests are very broad ranging from social inequality, environmental justice to natural resource conservation. Some of my previous work looks at topics like social media inequality in environmental activism, and cultural resistance of South-Asian migrants in the UK. 

I am also an artist and have illustrated a children’s book and am keen on making all research more accessible through art and video. 

I am currently working on three projects funded by the Scottish Government RESAS Strategic Research Programme (SRP) 2022-27:

B4-1 Increasing fruit and vegetable production for sustainable, healthy, affordable diets and secure jobs

D4-1 People and Nature

D5-3 Galvanising change via Natural Capital

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
