My research addresses questions of state power, urban space, and the production of political identities in South Asia and the Muslim world. Currently, I am working on a manuscript titled "Movement through Difference: Emergency, Nation and Popular Politics in Pakistan." Based on two years of fieldwork in Karachi, it examines the Muttaheda Quami Movement (United Nationalist Movement), an urban political party that is in the process of transitioning from an ethnic platform to one that is more universal in scale and ideology.
