Aditya is now an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Manchester
Previously, Aditya Ramesh worked on two streams within the PEAK Urban project at IIHS. The first is on infrastructure and governance which focuses on Bangalore as an emerging mega-region. The second is on the history and geography of water supply and inequality in the city of Bangalore from the 19th century to the present.
Aditya recently completed his PhD at SOAS, University of London, in which he examined rivers, experts and the economic life in colonial and postcolonial India. At present, he is turning his doctoral dissertation into a book-manuscript. He is interested in writing environmental histories of the present, the geographies of natural resource exploitation, and increasingly the intersection between urbanization and the environment.
