About me

I am Reader and research domain chair in Urban Futures in King’s College London. I am broadly interested in the politics of urban transformations in the global south, gender and citizenship. I am author of ‘The Illegal City: Space, law and gender in a Delhi squatter settlement’ (2012 Ashgate)  and co-editor of ‘Translocal Geographies: Spaces, places, connections’ (2011 Ashgate) and  ‘Mega-urbanization in the global South: Fast cities and new urban utopias of the postcolonial state’ (2017 Routledge). I am author of over 30 articles in peer reviewed journals as well as two films ‘City bypassed’ and City forgotten’.

I am currently editor of Dialogues in Human Geography and Urban Geography. I am also on the editorial boards of Antipode, Gender, Place and Culture, and Society and Space.
