My current research work explores the international capital flows and the gendered-racialized labour processes of digital platform-based service work in India and Canada. Previously, in my Master's thesis, I examined the relationship between neoliberal capitalist economy and gendered labour and violence in the context of mining zones in India. Overall, my work is informed by anti racist feminisms and Marxian political economy towards theorizing the relation between gender, labour and the state.
I teach and/or have designed curriculum related to themes of workplace hierarchies, gendered violence, social reproduction, relationship between nation-state, race and class, globalization of capitalist labour process, and transnational solidarity in social movements. I have published on issues of migrant women’s labour, urban working-class youth experiences in service sector, racialized women’s carework labour in Canada in academic journals as Journal of Studies in Continuing Education and popular media as Feminism in India, The Conversation, Jamhoor and New Canadian Media.
