Research interests:

For my dissertation research, I am exploring the intersections of sexuality, globalization, and sexual and reproductive health among urban, middle-class, adolescents in Mumbai, India.  Specifically, I am interested in understanding how this demographic constructs sexuality in the context of a liberalizing metropolis, and subsequently, how that translates into management of their sexual and reproductive health.

M.A. Title: "The Indian Diaspora: Situating Family Building Patterns in a Migrant Community"
