I am a Senior Research Fellow and PhD student at the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. I am researching on Interrogating Social Justice in Urban Patna. I also did my MPhil, titled Transformation and Advocacy: A Study of NGOs and Civil Society in Delhi's Slum, from the same centre. I did my MA in Social Work from Delhi School of Social Work, University of Delhi. I have been associated with development and research projects in the rural and urban part of India. My areas of interest are social justice, urbanisation, public policy, civil society and NGOs.
