Academic Poster for Summer Research - Studying Subaltern Architecture in Imperial Shimla

This summer, I conducted archival research on Records of housebuilding and improvements in Imperial Shimla. The research had special focus on subaltern architecture and the possible applications of these improvements to the Indian 100 smart cities programme. Do let me know if you have any questions!

I'm a student of Economics at University College London and as part of the Laidlaw programme, I'm researching building applications in subaltern housing in Imperial Shimla. This is a small part of a larger project studying social geography and urban planning in three cities: Jalandhar, Nasik and Shimla. 

When I'm not drowning under coursework, I write for the research division of the Economic Tribune at UCL. I also enjoy practicing Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and have recently been introduced to climbing.
