Sadhvi Dar holds a Diploma in Art and Design, a BSc in Psychology and a PhD in Management Studies. She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of Senate at Queen Mary. Her research investigates the juncture between measurement and culture, processes of knowledge production, governance and accountability structures and centers the marginalised or muted voices in institutions. Her work has contributed to current understandings in organization studies about accountability, reporting and decolonizing.

Theoretically, Sadhvi finds inspiration in postcolonial studies, decolonizing frameworks, social philosophy and psychoanalytic approaches, however, she also has an interest in post-structural theory more broadly. Her empirical work is diverse, ranging from critiques of NGO management, through to international development, higher education institutions, local government and arts organizations. Sadhvi has expertise in ethnography, archival research, discourse / narrative approaches, visual methodologies, cross-cultural analysis and interviewing.
