Hi there!

Thanks for arriving to this website. I set it up to bring together all the different strands of research, papers, podcasts, videos and photos I’ve done over the last decade or so and will do in the future.

I’m now a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Media Data and Society, located within the School of Public Policy at the Central European University (CEU). I’m very lucky to be working within the amazingly exciting project – Sound Relations: Transgressions, Disruptions, Transformations. The project will have teaching, researching and outputs all related to sound.

Before this I completed a doctorate in Sociology and Social Anthropology (CEU, 2016). You can read the dissertation here.

Broadly I have an interest in time and space, South Asian studies, visual anthropology and urban studies – the writing, videos, photos and podcasts found here all reflect this. Nearly always they deal with Mangaluru (India) and Budapest (Hungary), my two homes and/or research sites.

I’m fascinated by research questions relating to urbanisation, morality, rhythm, informal economies, modes of learning, housing, land use, development, migration, infrastructure and intercommunity relationships.

Before I became a father I looked like this:

One thought on “about

  1. Hi,
    I was browsing for sample blogs about urban culture, that I am interested in, when I accidently encountered your site.
    I was pretty shocked when I saw the name of my town, Budapest!!!
    I listened to your recording and the “music” that you composed from the sounds of the demonstration.
    This is saw exciting! Also that protests are more quite in Hungary than at other places. I didn’t know that but this is not a surprise. My theory is that we lost that kind of cohesive energy that other nations have.
