Sociology | University of Minnesota 

I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Minnesota and a Fellow at the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change. I am also a Resident at the Charles Babbage Institute (U of MN), a center for the history of information technology. My research and teaching interests lie in economic sociology, digital sociology, and global political economy.  


My dissertation titled, “Between the Cloud and a Hard Place: The Restructuring of an Offshore Industry in the Age of Disruptive Technologies" relates new developments in corporate software consumption to a wave of changes in India's IT industry.  My paper won the 2019 best student paper award (ASA section on Communication, Information Technologies, and Media Sociology). My work has been featured in media articles and also mentioned by MIT Technology Review, The State of Working India report (a prominent research report on employment trends in India), and a technical note published by The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.


I have an M.A and M.Phil in Sociology from the Delhi School of Economics.
