Academic Interests

I am currently interested in theorisations, debates, and empirical understandings of state and power broadly situated in the disciplines of political geography, political sociology, and intellectual history. My PhD project attempts to study the concept of state and its many loci in Nepal, where political-historical established notions of state and its 'government' are challenged. My research methodology centres on the study of the concepts of state and government through an ethnography of the 'political subject'.

My academic interests have included critical development theories, postcolonial and decolonial theories, poststructural critiques of historiography, continental political and moral thought, philosophy of language, and literary criticism.
