Research Profile

In the past few years, I have been working on urbanization, crime and security issues in cities. Specifically, I have been focusing on the gender dimensions of crime and safety issues in urban public spaces, particularly in low income neighbourhoods. Also, trying to unravel some of the factors contributing to the gendered patterns of crime. In future I would want to focus on security issues in women dominated-urban spaces and then would want to research into gender-based violence particularly among children in cities.
