As a political geographer, I study geographical implications of politics at various scales. I am especially interested in questions of power, ideology, mobility and identity within the context of shifting political landscapes. I study how borders of belonging or exclusion shift as political regimes change and how these fluid borders shape everyday struggles of underserved and marginalized individuals and communities. Within this conceptual framework, I study expressions of national identity through symbolic landscapes, counter-narratives, and acts of resistance.
