My research focuses on social movements, broadly including religion, gender violence, human rights, language, health, migration, media, politics, and the interplay of family and social life with movements. I use ethnographic and other methods to understand how movements develop and evolve at a grassroot level across society. Additionally, I focus on digital platforms as a key cite of contestation over political narratives, social movement evolution, cooption, and mobilization. I also explore material culture, and activism through art. My work on health, gender violence, and reproductive rights draw from the tradition of medical anthropology. My research is primarily focused on Tajikistan.
