I am a joint doctoral student in Education and Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently located in Delhi, India. I am interested in how disabled bodies come to be made numerically legible to the India state through measurement, certification and other related processes of quantification. My dissertation focuses on the disability certificate and the unique disability ID (UDID). I have prior experience with quantitative and qualitative research methods, planning workshops and conferences, and academic grant-writing. I would love to collaborate with others interested in thinking across disciplines about digital space as method and site, during and beyond COVID-19.
