I am Reader in Urban Futures in King’s College London and Programme Director of its MA/MSc Sustainable Cities degree. I am broadly interested in the politics of urban transformations in the global south, investigating this through feminist and postcolonial lens. 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’.
