PhD Candidate in Sociology
Summer Fellow 2022
Project Title: A subnational comparative Analysis of Decarbonization in India

Subadevan is a second year student in the sociology department with broad research interests in the fields of political economy, and economic, political, cultural and urban sociologies. He is interested in three main interconnected areas of inquiry: 1) how global and national processes of change reverberate at national, local and city scales and across social groups, 2) Governance struggles at the sub-national and local levels, and 3) the construction of markets and their impacts across social groups. He is currently developing a research project trying to link attitudinal changes towards neoliberalism with the expansion and recession of social welfare provision in the Global South.
