Since 1972, I have conducted a variety of research projects in India and elsewhere in South Asia, including research in village and small-town north India looking at how religious group membership and caste interrelate with childbearing, fertility behaviour, gender politics and schooling, in the context of agrarian change and the decline of the state. Since 2012 I have been involved in a series of projects on contemporary issues in public health in India and elsewhere. I have recently extended my research interests to include (a) environmental policy-making in South Asia; (b) the effects of India on Edinburgh, and more broadly, on Scotland, in the long 19th century, and the implications for contemporary Scottish society, culture and politics.

I am a Co-I in the South Asian Nitrogen Hub (one of the 12 interdisciplinary global research hubs supported by UK Research and Innovation through the Global Challenges Research Fund), a partnership of more than 40 institutions from nine countries, including the South Asia Cooperative Environment Programme (SACEP). The Hub’s recommendations will support cleaner and more profitable farming, as well as industrial recycling of nitrogen, fostering development of a cleaner circular economy for nitrogen. The Hub started in March 2019 and will continue for 5 years.

I was PI or Co-I in five projects completed since 2012:

(1) 'Advances in Research on Globally Accessible Medicine' (AROGYAM), (Indian-European Research Network Scheme), with partners at the University of Heidelberg, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, and the Achutha Menon Centre for Health Science Studies, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Trivandrum, India, from October 2012 to 31 December  2016. More details here.

(2) 'Dalit Politics and Democratisation in Tamil Nadu? Charting the Impact of the Liberation Panther Party,' (ESRC), with Hugo Gorringe (PI), from January 2012 to January 2014; more details here.

(3) 'Marginal Populations, Social Mobilisation and Development', (UK-India Education and Research Initiative), with Hugo Gorringe (PI) and Jeevan Sharma in Edinburgh, and Suryakant Waghmore (PI), Bipin Jojo and Abdul Shaban in the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, from January 2012 to January 2014; more details here.

(4) 'Access to Medicines in Africa and South Asia (AMASA)', (EU FP7) from January 2009 to November 2013, with, in Edinburgh, Petra Sevcikova, Jude Murison & Valerie Evans; in Queen Mary, London (Allyson Pollock, co-PI) and partners in Belgium, India, South Africa, Switzerland and Uganda. More details here.

(5) 'Biomedical and Health Experimentation in South Asia: Critical Perspectives on Collaboration, Governance and Competition (BHESA)',  (Phase 2 of the ESRC/DFID Joint Programme of research on international development (poverty alleviation)) ending in February 2013, with, in Edinburgh, Ian Harper, Anuj Kapilashrami & Jeevan Sharma; in Durham, Bob Simpson & Salla Sariola; and partners in Mumbai, Kathmandu and Colombo. More details here.

Other activities since 2012:

Until April 2018, I was a member of the evaluation pane for r4d, a programme of research on development for the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Until April 2013, I was a Member of the Strategic Advisory Team for the ESRC/DFID Joint Programme of research on international development (poverty alleviation) (PI: Professor Paul van Gardingen).

From 2011-15, I was the University's Dean (International) for India

Fom January-July 2015, I was Director of the Centre for South Asian Studies;

From 2012-15, I was Director of the Edinburgh India Institute.

Topics interested in supervising

I am no longer accepting new graduate students. I am currently supervising PhD students in the following areas: Child waste-pickers and schooling in Delhi; Female Dalit pradhans in Maharashtra; Indigenous knowledge and crop patents in India; Forest management and carbon in North-East India; Environment and migration in rural north India. Recently completed theses include: On-line activism and the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh; Caste and guru pujas in South India; Gendered spaces in Dooars tea gardens; Old age homes in Goa; Fertility change in Pakistan.
