Meghmala MukherjeeMatric Year: 2022 – Subject: BCL – Scholarship: HSA Advocates Scholar
Meghmala graduated from National Law University Odisha, in 2018 with B.B.A., LL.B. (Hons) topping her batch with 7 gold medals. She is reading for the BCL at Somerville College, and hopes to continue her time in Oxford by studying for a DPhil as she intends to frame and simplify the manner in which corporate law is taught in India.
She thanks her alma mater for providing a generous academic scholarship for 4 years which funded her studies, and provided her the impetus to become an advocate and practice in India. Professionally, she has represented both established and start-up clients receiving equity and debt investments over the past 4 years. These few years of practice has also helped her in refine her understanding of corporate law and its evolution.
She is interested in exploring the convergences of company law across common law jurisdictions and the influence of British colonialism on corporate law in India. Her specific interest lies in investor rights, and the interplay of their rights vis-à-vis the company as an entity, and is keen to explore how the exercise of investor rights may also lead to the downfall of corporations.
She is grateful to the HSA Advocates Scholarship, the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development and Somerville College for having given her the rare opportunity of pursuing her passion and read the BCL. She is looking forward to learn from some of the world’s leading professors and engage with a group of accomplished individuals where she will be able to discuss how local customs and practises are impacting multinational corporations as they enter niche jurisdictions.
Ritheka SundarMatric Year: 2022 – Subject: MSc Economics for Development – Scholarship: Oxford-Gopal Subramanium Scholar
Ritheka Sundar holds an undergraduate degree in economics from Stella Maris College in Chennai. She aims to contribute towards building an empathetic society, with reduced poverty, so that people from marginalised social and economic backgrounds have an increased access to better opportunities and subsequently, a better life.
While performing research for a course in Agricultural Economics, she learned that women farmers are more constrained by the lack of access to land, technology, and financial resources.
In this light, she is specifically interested in analysing gender-based income inequalities within the agricultural labour market in India while also considering the effect the current trends in climate change can have on the target population. As one of the nine students chosen from her college to pursue the Millennium Fellowship in
2021, hosted by MCN and United Nations Academic Impact, she undertook a project on financial literacy to demystify personal banking and finance for college students in Chennai.
Ritheka has worked as a Senior Research Associate with The Parley Project, a youth-led organisation called where she has spearheaded the Prep with Parley Initiative that aims to improve students’ access to information related to graduate admissions process. She is currently a mentor at Project EduAccess, a non-profit initiative that aims to improve access to higher education for learners from marginalised communities in South Asia. Working with Bhumi, she volunteered as a mentor to engage students creatively and teach them about preserving the environment.
As a first generation student, she is deeply grateful for the support offered by the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development (OICSD). Here, she aims to refine her research and work closely with the other scholars.
Ishani MookherjeeMatric Year: 2022 – Subject: Bachelor of Civil Law – Scholarship: Cornelia Sorabji Scholar
I aim to pursue a career in research and academia, specialising in the field of constitutional law, human rights, and jurisprudence. I graduated with the B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) degree from Jindal Global Law School, India. Across my courses, I deployed a critical approach to understand the philosophy and ramifications of constitutional and statutory rights. Through courses like Constitutional Law, Women’s Movement in India, and Jurisprudence, I gained a nuanced understanding of the rights to life, privacy, and dignity, and the State’s extensive control over intimate aspects of women’s lives. Simultaneously, I undertook various fact-finding projects during my internship at Human Rights Law Network and as a Board Member of the Legal Aid Clinic at Jindal Global Law School. These exposed me to the structural deficiencies in the legal framework that limited State accountability on the State’s failure to fulfil its obligations. This made me question whether the ‘rights’ captured in books ever materialise for women in action.
My consequent interest in exploring the rights-based framework through feminist and critical legal scholarship drove me to publish articles scrutinizing the law in India through these approaches. For instance, I published a paper analysing the judicial interpretation of the right to privacy in India and on its implications on women. I undertook extensive comparative study of the right to privacy, bodily autonomy and dignity, while working on a research project on criminalization of Female Genital Mutilation across jurisdictions. As a Teaching Assistant for the Jurisprudence course, I explored MacKinnon’s works on feminist jurisprudence and its synergies with the constitutional and statutory rights-based regime in India.
During the BCL, I wish to undertake comparative and inter-disciplinary study of human rights and corresponding State obligations, and meaningfully contribute towards the growing scholarship on feminist constitutionalism. I am looking forward to the curriculum and the research opportunities at Oxford. I am grateful to the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development and Somerville College for awarding me the Cornelia Sorabji Scholarship to enable me to pursue this crucial opportunity.
Kankana ChatterjeeMatric Year: 2022 – Subject: MSc Modern South Asian Studies – Scholarship: Oxford-Indira Gandhi-Radhakrishnan Scholar
Through her academic and research activities, Kankana questions the central role that conjugality has historically played in determining women’s social position and reception.
Kankana has always been moved by the gross deprivations meted out to single women, especially widows. Through her stint at Oxford, she intends to sharpen her critical understanding of the heteropatriarchal gender norms in order to address how or whether singlehood affects women’s access to developmental resources in the regime of governmentality, especially in the postcolonial condition.
Kankana gained her bachelor’s degree in 2020 from the Department of English, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. She is looking forward to receiving her master’s degree from the same department in 2022. As a student of Modern South Asian Studies at Oxford, she would like to complement her training in deciphering literary texts with some training in social research and an understanding of contemporary South Asia. She has been interested in studies on the long nineteenth century, life histories, postcolonial theory and literature, gender studies and translation and strongly believes that her regular participation in academic discussions in the areas of her interest has enhanced her critical and analytical skills and ability to think beyond disciplinary boundaries.
Medha MukherjeeMatric Year: 2022 – Subject: DPhil in Geography and the Environment – Scholarship: Oxford-Indira Gandhi Scholar
“A significant part of the global population still lacks access to even the most basic services, such as safe water, food and healthcare in the 21st century. A sustainable world without such inequalities of access is what I try to work towards, with the countless academics, practitioners, and most importantly, the affected communities out there, envisioning the same.”
Water, a basic human right, is the focus of Medha’s research. She explores how the low-income, the marginalised, and the most excluded in rural India, can have reliable access to safe drinking water. Medha examines how inclusive outcomes can be reached through national, state and individual choices that impact, and are impacted by, inequalities. Studying such choices and inequalities through the prism of Intersectionality, she identifies markers of identity that shape everyday experiences in limiting, or enabling, access to drinking water. Gathering empirical evidence is a critical component of her work: she grounds her academic research in lived experiences of the people, to inform both theory and practice. As an anthropogeographer and social scientist, she further draws upon the natural sciences, development economics, politics, sociology and history.
Prior to her selection as a PhD candidate and Oxford Indira Gandhi Scholar, Medha was a recipient of the Felix Scholarship, for her postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford. Medha’s MSc dissertation focused on inequalities of water access faced by the urban poor in Kolkata, India. She conducted extensive empirical research, amidst COVID-19 restrictions, documenting quotidian challenges of the inhabitants of informal settlements. She graduated with a Distinction, and went on to become a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS).
Growing up in India, Medha has been sensitized to the juxtaposition of excess and inadequacy, in both rural and urban settings. Travelling across India’s diverse landscape since childhood, particularly the Himalaya, has shaped her perception of the delicate balance that exists between humans, and the natural world. Her study of Ethics and the Classics, as an English Literature undergraduate at Jadavpur University, has been pivotal in informing her current research interests. Her five-year background as a writer for the film industry, particularly, documentaries, contributes to her diverse research approach. She remains a strong advocate of transcending disciplinary boundaries, and is happy to engage in any discussion, academic and beyond, to further inclusivity.

Bachelor of Arts in English with Honours, Department of English, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India
Radhika KhoslaResearch Director, Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development; Associate Professor, Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment; Senior Research Fellow
Dr Radhika Khosla is Associate Professor at the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment, School of Geography and the Environment, and Research Director of the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development, Somerville College, at the University of Oxford. She works on examining the productive tensions between urban transitions, energy services consumption and climate change with a focus on developing country cities.
Radhika’s other current academic affiliations are at University of Pennsylvania (USA), and the Centre for Policy Research (India). She serves on the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office UK-India Advisory Board; on the Steering Committee of the Smart Surfaces Coalition; on boards of journals and book presses; and on a range of advisory roles within Oxford.
The two sets of interrelated questions underlie her research priorities. First, how does consumption of energy-related services change as cities urbanize? What are the socio-technical systems and institutional structures that shape (and can reconfigure) energy and carbon emission pathways? Second, what forms of governance and political rationalities characterize the varied urban responses to climate change in rapidly developing cities, given their (often competing) objectives to provide urban services? Her broader interdisciplinary research examines how cities in transition manage the tensions of meeting growing energy needs for development while protecting the local and global environment.

Siddharth AroraResearch Fellow; Associate, Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development; Parkinson's UK Early Career Fellow
Siddharth completed his DPhil, focused on developing statistical methods for time series forecasting, at Somerville College.
His research interests include Biomedical Signal & Image Processing, Statistical Modelling, Forecasting, and Chaos Synchronization. His work is primarily concerned with two application areas: Healthcare, and Energy.
Currently, Siddharth is investigating remote technologies for the diagnosis and monitoring of Parkinson’s disease. He develops statistical algorithms using data for voice, gait, posture, reaction times, dexterity, and tremor, collected using smartphones in a home and community setting. These algorithms are aimed at identifying patterns in the data, which can be used to discriminate people with Parkinson’s disease from healthy controls and accurately monitor the severity symptoms of the disease over time.
Siddharth is also working on a NHS funded project aimed at predicting the A&E arrivals, admissions and discharges across hospitals in the West Midlands. The algorithms developed as part of this project will be used operationally by the NHS to optimize staffing decisions, which would help reduce patient waiting times.

Alfred Gathorne-HardySenior Research Fellow, Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development
Alfred Gathorne-Hardy is Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development.
His career has spanned academia, consultancy, parliament and government including a secondment to Defra to develop the Government’s Bioenergy Sustainability Criteria. His academic research examines the interactions and trade-offs between different players in socio-ecological systems. He received his doctorate from Imperial College before coming to Oxford in 2011 to study the Indian food system.
What will you eat for supper tonight? Pasta due to fussy children, or raw vegetables for health? Perhaps you’ll avoid meat due to cultural/religious views, or maybe you don’t mind what you eat as long as there’s plenty of it at a good price. Then again maybe you’re not in a position to choose – maybe you’re one of the 2 billion who don’t have access to adequate food, let alone the ability to choose from the enormous variety we are familiar with in the west.
Whatever your do, you are part of the global food system, both driving impacts and vulnerable to what the system throws at you. Your decisions will influence not only local issues such as your health and wallet, but also global factors including the rate of agricultural expansion into biodiverse rich habitats; the employment and job qualities of those working in the world’s largest sector; the aesthetics of landscapes as well as climate change, and energy use and numerous other factors. Equally your ability to buy adequate food is impacted by your employment conditions, the global economy, resistance of pests to pesticides, national food policies and the ability of the food system to respond to biotic and abiotic shocks around the world.
It is the complexity of this push- and pull- relationship that I’m fascinated by. While most of us want to reduce our environmental impacts, which aspects of the environment are most important? Once we’ve made these decisions of what we value, how can we measure them? And if do measure them, what can we do about trade-offs: which is more important, our love of certain foods, the working conditions of those that produce them, climate change, biodiversity?

Maan BaruaAssociate, Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development; University Lecturer in Human Geography, Cambridge University
Maan is a University Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Cambridge, and a research affiliate of the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development.
Maan completed his DPhil in human geography at the School of Geography and the Environment in 2013 (Clarendon and Senior Hulme Scholar, Brasenose College). He has an undergraduate degree in the biological sciences from India (First class; 1st; honours) and an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management (Distinction), also from Oxford.
Maan’s research is situated within environmental and cultural geography, the central axis of which focuses on the spatialities, politics and governance of the living and material world. It conceptually develops two of geography’s vibrant sub-fields – more-than-human geography and political ecology – with which he has engaged through his doctoral and postdoctoral research. Maan teaches environmental and human geography at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Hid work engages political ecology and posthumanist thought to develop new understandings of the geographies of nature. Of particular interest are nonhuman ecologies and processes pertaining to production, landscape and knowledge. Maan’s ongoing and past work interrogates these ecologies through a number of empirical foci, including urban ecologies, nonhuman labour and commodity production, and historical and contemporary more-than-human geographies. A theme cutting through these empirics is the traffic between nature and capital, and more broadly, between ecology and economy.
Maan lectures on the ‘Environmental Geography’ foundation course for undergraduates, besides conducting tutorials on various human geography topics for different colleges. At postgraduate level, he co-teaches a module on ‘Conservation and Society’ on the MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management, and convenes an option ‘Urban Political Ecology’ for masters students across the School of Geography and the Environment.
