Professor, Ambedkar University
I joined Ambedkar University Delhi in 2010 after fifteen years of undergraduate teaching at the Department of Economics, Ramjas College, University of Delhi.
I work on the interface of critical development studies and political ecology. Some of the themes I study are conservation and rural livelihoods, forced displacement, social impact assessment, agrarian change and rural education.
I am the founder and President of the NGO Adharshila, and founder trustee of the NGO Samrakshan Trust. Both organizations work for sustainable and dignified livelihoods and education in the dryland forested areas in the Chambal region of Central India.
