Additional Information
About My Work
I have been working towards issues of environmental and urban governance and politics across rural-urban nexus. Thus, I look at how urban informality and environmental degradation coincide in the peripheries of city-regions, specifically in the Globa South.

Professional Associations
Unfortunately, due to currency crisis, it is not very frequent. The last time I attended a conference was in 2019 and it was the Annual Meeting of the AAG by the support of Gender, Place and Culture Journal.
