Reproductive Sociology Research Group


My PhD project is on the substance of fat, which I study by looking at historical and contemporary uses of skinfold calipers. I am carrying out this research under the supervision of Dr. Katie Dow and Professor Sarah Franklin and with the support of the Cambridge Trust. Prior to beginning my PhD, I was a Hindi language fellow at the American Institute of Indian Studies. I previously graduated from Cambridge with an MPhil in the Sociology of Reproduction, from Princeton University with a BA in public policy and, even further back, from the United World College of India with a UWC diploma.
