My research interests are primarily in gender, development, intersectionality, well-being, gendered agency, qualitative methods and South Asian studies.
My doctoral research explores intersectionality, well-being and agency amongst Nepali widows. The methodological approach taken involves a triangulation of qualaitive methods. My research hopes to not only contribute empirically to the limited scholarship on widowhood, especially in Nepal, but also conceptually to reimagine approaches to understanding and theorising widowhood. With this doctoral research, and my personal pursuits outwith this work, I hope to bring attention to the issue of widowhood and in some way improve the lives of Nepali widows.
