I’m a socio-legal scholar interested in the intersections between law, globalization, and stratification from a global south, feminist perspective. Employing a range of methods and approaches, my research interrogates the ways in which laws and legal institutions create and reproduce inequalities.
My work has appeared, or is forthcoming in, among other journals, the Law and Society Review, Law and Social Inquiry, UCI Journal of International, Transnational and Comparative Law, International Journal of the Legal Profession, and Fordham Law Review. I'm currently working on three book projects:
Accidental Feminism, exploring gendered mobility in the Indian legal profession (under contract with Princeton University Press)
Gender Regimes and the Politics of Privacy, analyzing the relationship between privacy laws and their gendered political consequences (with Kalpana Kannabiran, under contract with Zubaan Books)
Invisible Institutionalisms, on institutions and grounded legal theory from the global south (co-edited with Sara Dezalay, under contract with Hart Publishing)
I hold law degrees from the National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (India) and Harvard Law School, and a PhD in Sociology from Stanford University (2015).
