Research Interests

My research takes urban roads as the primary frame to examine the politics of infrastructure and inhabitation in Karachi, Pakistan. It contributes to and brings together scholarship on infrastructure, inhabitation, and more-than-human geography. Accordingly, it attends to the liminal forms of human and non-human inhabitations that are sutured in relation to roads and ones that are violently unmade in order to further roads. It focuses on the governance practices and lived realities that produce roads as sites of tensions and encounters shaped by social categories of class and gender. Through careful ethnography, it offers ways of conceptualising how infrastructure, urban governance, and everyday improvisations for humans and non-humans constitute the urban, in all its conflictual and convivial forms.
