What new perspectives about the history and practice of science, technology, and medicine emerge when we foreground the intellectual labor of thinkers and practitioners from the Global South? My work centers the lives and creative visions of scientific practitioners in South Asia, challenging scholars to reorient how we understand the past and future of science, technology, and medicine. The themes of my research span the fields of health and medicine, pandemics, biological materials, and computing. 
Across these themes, I account for foundational global inequalities that shape the limits and possibilities of science, technology, and medicine in the lives of people in South Asia—ranging from doctors, patients, technocrats, scientists, and engineers. Ultimately, my work is driven by my commitment to envisioning more expansive geographies for science and technology studies.
