Human geographer / PhD Student at University of Copenhagen

I am an urban geographer I work on the social relationship between people in urban areas and the potential of extensive link between rural and urban areas through the connections made by migrants. My research include studies into urban assemblages, rural urban connections and knowledge in urban areas mainly in Nepal, but also in a Scandinavian context. A key part of this has been through a focus on the transformation of ordinary urban areas and the experience and practice of the urban population in their everyday life. My current PhD work examines the social relationship between people in new emerging urban areas in small, medium and large urban areas in Nepal. My research does also include studies of multilocality and migration and development in the me on:
