I am currently interested in theorisations, debates, and empirical understandings of state and power situated broadly in the disciplines of political geography, political sociology, and intellectual history. My PhD project attempts to study the state and its many loci in Nepal, where political-historical established notions of state and its 'government' are challenged. I am particularly interested in finding research methodologies for the articulations of political ontology and using it in the critical analysis and recovery of the state. My academic interests have included critical development, postcolonial and decolonial theories, poststructural critiques of historiography, Western political and moral thought, philosophy of language, and literary criticism.
I have an undergraduate degree in English Literature and History from the Université Paris-Sorbonne, Paris IV, and a post-graduate degree in South Asia and International Development from the University of Edinburgh, School of Social and Political Science.
