2011-2014: “Servicing Workers: Offshoots of India's Transnational Information Technology Industry”, funded by Social Science and Humanities Research Council, (SSHRC) Canada. This collaborative project with Dr. Kiran Mirchandani (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto) and Dr. Shruti Tambe (Pune University, India) examines the predominantly invisible, precarious and informalized labor of auxiliary workers like drivers, security guards and housekeepers who support the hyper-visible, globalized, IT service sector in Pune, India. Three years of fieldwork documenting the lives and livelihoods of auxiliary service workers has exposed the complex and contradictory implications of neoliberal globalization on cities of the global south.
