I'm a Ph.D. scholar at the Department of Liberal Arts, IIT Hyderabad. I hold an MA in Development Studies from the TISS, Mumbai, and a B. Tech. (ICT) from DA-IICT, Gandhinagar. I am interested in exploring technologies as cultural artifacts, and their intersections with labor and place-making practices. My doctoral research is an ethnographic exploration of the entanglements between food production and distribution, the digital economy, and gendered forms of labor brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic in Hyderabad, India.
