Introduction
Currently, I am pursuing my postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of New Media and Communications (CNM) at NUS for a project that investigates sexual misconduct on campuses in Singapore, a first-of-its-kind study in Singapore's context.

My thesis examined and mapped women's worlds in the religious and ancient city of Banaras, India.
