British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. From September 2016 I will be taking up a lectureship in Social Anthropology at the University of Sussex. My research interests are centred upon law, bureaucracy, development, and the state in South Asia. My first book published by Cambridge University Press in 2016, Paper Tiger: Law, Bureaucracy, and the Developmental State in Himalayan India, makes a case for re-assessing the workings of the state in India.
