I completed my doctoral research examining the origins of the mutlipurpose reservoir at SOAS, University of London, following which I joined the Prediction, Emergence, Adaptation and Knowledge (PEAK) Urban GCRF project to work on infrastructure and water in the city of Bangalore. At Manchester, I am returning to the sites of my doctoral research and attempting to write histories of deltas in southern India, using historical maps and data drawn from colonial archives.
