I am an Assistant Professor of Urbanism and Urban Architecture at the Faculty of the Built Environment at Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands). Trained as an architect and urbanist in India and Germany, I received my Ph.D. in Urban Studies and Architecture from Bauhaus University (Germany) in 2012. Prior to joining the Chair of Urbanism and Urban Architecture, I spent the course of my graduate studies and professional life, working as an architect, designer, and lecturer, researcher in Bangalore (India, 2006-07), Aachen, Dessau, Weimar (Germany, 2007-12) and Toronto (Canada, 2012-14). 

My main focus lies at the interface of urban, social and cultural geography, where my scholarship analyses how cities can use their resources and values for better sustainable development. Within these fields, I have published on aggregated and individual socio-spatial practices; participatory practices and place-making;  and place identity. I have been a PI and team member on research projects in the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, and India.
