Doctor of Philosophy, Postgraduate Research Student
I am a doctoral student in SPS researching women’s experiences of the WorkFREE Universal Basic Income (UBI) project in Hyderabad, India in order to inform what might constitute a feminist UBI and contribute to realising the potential transformative impacts of Universal Basic Income for women and those facing other intersectional inequalities. I am a member of the Frieberg Institute of Basic Income Studies (FRIBIS) gender team. My research interests also include feminist and decolonising methodologies, participatory methods, and gender in a development context.
